Album Notes
"Play That Damn Guitar", the appropriately titled, mega-awesome 3rd solo studio disc from this amazing, gifted blues/rock axeripper features 11 tracks (58 minutes) of Classic, mind-blowing, over-the-top, bad-ass, killer, bluesy, Hendrix-inspired, heavy guitar power trio riffage from a true axemaster that will rock your world into the next musical dimension. Jay Jesse Johnson (Triple J) reigns supreme on the guitar and proves that he is the REAL deal as he takes his "Damn Guitar" to new levels of insanity and beyond on this tremendous Grooveyard Records disc. A truly remarkable and prolific, hard-hitting bluesy heavy guitar masterpiece.

Jay Jesse Johnson or, as we like to refer to him, "Triple J", is an incredible, seasoned and accomplished guitarist who speaks volumes on the instrument. The Man gives the term "Guitar Hero" new meaning with his latest monumental heavy guitar journey/statement. Johnson deserves all the credit he can get for the vast musical accomplishments he effortlessly displays and documents on the brilliant "Play That Damn Guitar" disc. JJJ is without any doubts one of the best blues-based rock guitarists in the world and he has achieved true greatness with this phenomenal heavy guitar disc that will stand the test of time. From start to finish, "Play That Damn Guitar" is a Complete, mind-blowing heavy guitar monster that represents serious six-string business from an important, inspirational axemaster. Make no mistake, during these tough musical times, we have an awesome new legitimate modern day Guitar Hero to look up to who is on a mission to save REAL Guitar Rock and his name is Jay Jesse Johnson.

"Play That Damn Guitar" also features the incredible powerhouse rhythm section of Steve Shore on Bass and Joe Aparo on Drums. Both excellent talented players in their own right who embellish each track with endless power and groove. Both Aparo and Shore lay down the perfect musical foundation for Johnson to strut his bad-ass, killer bluesy heavy guitar power trio riffage. On the downside, we are extremely sad to say that our "good musical brother" Steve Shore has recently passed since the recording of this disc and the Man will be greatly missed. Steve Shore's low-end bottom kool bass grooves will live on forever through this incredible, timeless musical document. Brother Steve Shore is and always will be our "Four String Angel".

The JAY JESSE JOHNSON: "Play That Damn Guitar" disc is a remarkable bluesy heavy guitar disc that is HIGHLY recommended to fans of the :::TOP THREE::: (((HENDRIX, TROWER & FRANK MARINO))), along with such guitar greats as SRV, JOE BONAMASSA, MICHAEL SCHENKER, RICHIE BLACKMORE, ERIC GALES, LANCE LOPEZ, STEVIE SALAS, RICHIE KOTZEN, CRAIG ERICKSON, BUDDAHEADS, CLAS YNGSTROM AND SKY HIGH and other awesome, world-class bluesy heavy guitar axerippers who rule in the Guitar World. If you love serious bluesy heavy guitar power trio riffage, you owe it to yourself to tune into this amazing and spectacular Guitarist. Even though the whole world has gone crazy, it's time to dig in deep with the Riffage that Matters and "Play Your Damn Guitar" with Jay Jesse Johnson.

I've had this CD a couple of months now and have to say it is one of the best 70's influenced bluesy classic rock CD's I've bought in a long time. The production is huge and JJJ plays up a storm and is in my opinion one of the most tasty and gifted players around today. This is his hardest rocking CD yet and a real treat to heavy Hendrix inspired guitar lovers. Anyone who likes Hendrix or guys like Frank Marino & Robin Trower when they totally rocked in the 70's will love this CD...I know I do.
