This young man has enormous talents.I recently witnessed a 2song DVD by Billy and his band that just added to my excitement regarding this onstage dynamo who boasts moviestar good looks, a Huge voice, great guitarplaying and a Hot repertoire of tunes. All tracks were written by Billy ...and what a voice!With Billy Jones showing so many talents and covering every single genre close to Blues, the Man is a 'can't miss' starinthemaking No wait, he's not inthemaking He's made!If a major U.S. label doesn't scoop up this highlevel Blues genius within the next 34 months then we're all in trouble! But, whatever happens, No One is going to keep a lid on Billy Jones. He's off onarocket folks and we certainly need a Big Blues talent like his.quot;quot;One of the very Best Authentic Modern Blues and Soul albums in recent memory.quot;httpwww.realbluesm agazine.comhttpmyspace.combill yjonesblueznbsp;...gangsta bluez from the ghetto. ...gangsta bluez for the ghetto quot;Billy Jones is one of the 'good guys'. He is a young man from Arkansas who is truly interested in advancing and extending 'Great Soul Music' from the Ancient to the Future' and making sure that it is available for future generations. As such he is one of my personal musical heroes. We don't have enough artists like him and hopefully he is going to inspire others.Updating the blues for the 21st century is not an easy matter... Billy Jones has managed it.Think Bobby Womack with Curtis Mayfield's social conscience and you are getting close.Perhaps the most important thing to note is that his sound is more acceptable to modern ears and maybe that will get more people to listen to his message.Jones has a voice that will enchant you. This is a fine, soulful album.It's a first person rumination about quot;growing up in the ghettoquot; that packs a poignant wallop. The message is deep and heartfelt... lyricallyinspired Contemporary Ramp;B.quot;httpwww.SoulPatrol .comhttpwww.blackplanet.combil lyjonesblueznbsp;quot;Billy Jones brings back the Thrill that once belonged to Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Frank Marino amp; Mahogany Rush. ...A refreshing blast of the really great sound of Healing Blues, Jazz, Funk Music. Loaded with Rich Blues Tradition B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Even Johnny Winter Flavors. I'd recommend this to any avid blues listener and I look forward to hearing more from the reclusive Billy Jones.quot; www.southerncoalitionmovement. combillyjonesbluezwww.centerst agechicago.commusicwhoswhoBill yJonesBluez.htmlnbsp;The Incredible Resurrection, Metamorphosis and Reinvention of Blues and Soul Music quot;No one who I can think of, except perhaps James quot;Bloodquot; Ulmer, has taken a truly contemporary look at traditional blues with the musical and lyrical intensity of Billy Jones. While Ulmer's music is often dark and angry, Jones takes a more restrained and soulful approach while still expressing deep love, despair, and other intense feelings with his music.Musically, there is a mix of styles on the CD. Jones can hammer out some hard, driving blues or go more traditional in his approach. But what really got to me were the lyrics. There are several songs where Billy gets into the urban problems of his quot;hometown.quot;The modern, urban blues lyrics start right from the beginning of the CD. He starts out with some slow jamblues in a ballad called quot;Here With Youquot;. He sings of how deep his love is quot;your love is much warmer than my prison cell, so if the homies ride tonight I think I'm gonna stay right herequot;. With the second track, quot;Pull My 44quot;, Jones sings of a jealous lovers' rage. He describes his lovers' beauty and talks about how he's jealous and if quot;I catch you messin' wit' my woman, Man I'm mo' pull my 44quot;. The music has a Mississippi Delta component to it, yet it is modern and urban. Later, we hear quot;Crystalquot;; this is a semipsychedelic rocking song about his addiction and the dangers of Crystal. It's not a girlfriend named Crystal, but crystal methamphetamine. In the title track, quot;My Hometown', Jones talks frankly about the problems in the ghetto. Schools not teaching you what to do, gangs, violence, meth labs, broken families, and a repressive system all become part of these modern blues.Jones goes a more traditional Ramp;B route with music and lyrics in cuts like quot;Right Nowquot; and quot;Never Let You Goquot;. The deep bass notes driving the beat and his vocals are a throwback to an older soul era where he sings of loves won and lost. In quot;The Clownquot; Billy goes to his guitar and sweetly bends some notes to punctuate the song about his lost love, where he states quot;and girl for you I'm just a clown.quot;Top to bottom, this is a nice little CD.Jones calls his music quot;Bluezquot; and sings about the problems of his life and hometown with heart and feeling; it is quot;bluesquot; transformed, updated and urbanized. This North Little Rock, Arkansas musician is the real deal and quot;my Hometownquot; is a great CD!quot;httpcrossroadsreviews. blogspot.comBilly Jones Bluez Links httpbillyjonesbluez.hyves.net; ...europehttpmyspace.combillyj onesbluez; ...usa ...Official Websitehttpmusictrax.jpbillyjo nesbluez; ...japanhttpwww.blackplanet.co mbillyjonesbluez ...usahttplosangeles.going.com billyjonesbluez ...los angeleshttpwww.facebook.compro file.php?id551528789; ...usahttpmyspace.cnbillyjones bluez ...chinahttpwww.youtube.comwat ch?v8oWMVvlG64U ...videohttpwww.youtube.comwat ch?vraoYbdFUdrg ...videohttpwww.liveforlondon. comprofilebillyjonesbluez ...united kingdomhttpwww.nextcat.combill yjonesbluez ...hollywoodhttpreverbnation.c ombillyjonesbluez ...usahttpwww.livebluesworld.c omprofilebillyjonesbluez ...da' hangouthttpwww.southerncoaliti onmovement.combillyjonesbluez ...da' homies
