Album Notes
Jinx Jones
"One thing that really sets Jinx Jones apart is his obvious knowledge and love of jazz and chords. Almost all of the solos feature a section that's a trip through chord-city. By the time the single notes start to fly, you're really impressed by his know-how."
--Vintage Guitar Magazine, August, 2001

"San Francisco's Jinx Jones' knack for stellar guitar is both a feast for tone aficionados a lovely stroll down memory lane."
--Guitar Player Magazine, March, 2001

In Jinx Jones' impressive musical career he has visited nearly every conceivable style and genre of the electric guitar. From his work with R&B divas, En Vogue to his own acclaimed rockabilly album, "License to Twang," Jones has always strived to expand the possibilities of the instrument. He accepts every musical challenge head on, always making an impressive statement with his music. The one thing that remains consistent throughout Jones' multi-stylistic journey is the grace and finesse of his virtuoso playing.

"Jinx is the best. To disagree is to say that you've never seen him perform. He is, by far, one of the most gifted players in the city."
--Front Row Magazine

"Gifted with a good swing feel, the eclectic Jinx Jones spices up Rock, Jazz, R&B and Rockabilly arrangements with chromatic surprises...his sophisticated phrasing suggests good things to come."
--Guitar Player Magazine, May, 1993

In 2000, Jinx Jones released his solo rockabilly CD, "License to Twang" which received stellar reviews form national magazines such as Guitar Player, Vintage Guitar, and Blue Suede News. His current rockabilly band the KingTones have appeared on National Public Radio and are a popular attraction in the California market.

Elroy Adolphson

Jinx is a guitar virtuoso, amen!
Jinx is as good as the better known Brian Setzer. His virtuosity is a feast for those with ears that hear, and souls that like to soar on the wings of great music. Jinx is an Unsung American guitar heroe!

A Henrikson

This CD defies description - if you like rockabilly tinged with western and swing, buy this CD now!!! Great tunes - great guitar work!!! I only gave it 5 stars, because they won't allow 6! Again, buy this CD now!!

Dave Lowe

Awesome Rockabilly CD!
Great Rockabilly CD. Jinx steps out of the box and rocks! I'm a stray cats fan and a guitar player and this just expands what rockabilly is all about! A must for any Rockabilly collection.


Jinx Jones rocks!
This album is traditional, old school, twangy rockabilly at it's finest. Jinx is a VERY talented guitarist and the band keeps the groove going nicely. This is a great record and I think any fan of traditional rockabilly needs a copy.
