Album Notes
"A couple of former co-workers used to come into my office on Monday mornings and rave about some local singer/guitarist named Jono Manson. I finally got a chance to hear him for myself and ended up with a copy of his debut album, One Horse Town. With help from some studio heavyweights (Ian Wallace on drums, the late Nicky Hopkins on piano) and an occasional guest artist (Blues Traveler's John Popper on harmonica), Manson has put together an album that has something for just about everyone: straightahead pop'n'roll ("It's the Singer, Not the Song," "A Little Rock & Roll Never Hurt Anyone"), funk ("I've Been Down"), and reggae ("Island"). My favorite out of the bunch is "Black Blue Jeans": with Jeffrey Barr's sweaty-sounding organ and Hopkins's piano work trading time with Manson's guitar, this song is one of the best blues/gospel songs I've heard in years, and easily worth the price of the CD by itself." John Swenson - Stereophile Magazine

“Jono Manson is a soulful guitarist and singer who here leads a loose band through some R&B-tinged rock. Though the disc includes such guests as Nicky Hopkins, fellow Downtown NYC icon Ron Sunshine and Blues Traveler’s harmonica prodigy John Popper, the show here belongs to Manson, whose rich and smooth vocals are complimented by a limber band of equally impressive talent.” Huh Magazine

"One Horse Town is nothing short of a portable saturday night. It comes complete with smoking horns, hot players (like the late keyboard god Nicky Hopkins, drummer Ian Wallace and harpist John Popper) and no frills R&B and all thats missing is Manson working the crowd between songs. Equal parts NRBQ, Asbury Dukes and side four of Exile on Main Street" Phoenix New Times
