Album Notes
Joe Denson was born into music. His mother and grandmother were musicians. Joe started playing Guitar at the early age of ten. By the time he was in the 7th grade he was playing in local clubs and colleges. His 7th grade
band director, who was a renown concert violinist in his own right, called Joe a true virtuoso. Even today Smokin' Joe Denson is recognized by his peers as well as audiences all over as a Master Guitarist and Composer. His sound and style has been described as Jimi Hendrix meets Joe Satriani. Every decade since the 60s Joe has played the major clubs and concert halls. In the late 60s it was the
infamous Catacombs club and "Love Street" where he backed up such bands as: Canned Heat, Blue Cheer, Steppenwolf. Also there was the annual "Battle Of The Bands" at the Albert Thomas Convention Center.

On a Friday night, September 18th, 1970, the day Jimi Hendrix died, Smokin'Joe, along with other local musicians played tribute in concert at the "Of Our
Own" concert hall. The 70s took Joe from Houstons "Liberty Hall" to Hollywoods infamous "Whiskey A Go Go. The 80s were spent mainly doing session work. Doing this enabled joe to concentrate more on his song writing. Composing since the 60s you can bet his writing capabilities have been honed to a fine degree. The 90's; Smokin' Joe was back in the saddle with his 3 piece band "SHOGUN".Playing in and out of town alot was Joe's passion. No matter what size a club or hall is, big or small you can bet" Smokin' Joe Denson" will be burnin' down the house with his own brand of progressive rock n' roll.
The year 2000 Smokin' Joe started out the new millineum with a massisive "bang". He released his first solo album "Into The Madness" on Bi-Polar Records.
In fact it was possibly the first CD to be released of the year. Official date and time of release was 12:01am January 1st 2000. Since that time Smokin' Joe has
released one CD per year for a total of three.

Keeping in the grand tradition of Jimi Hendrix, Frank Marino/Mahogany Rush and Joe Satriani. Smokin' Joe shows a wide range of emotion in his playing. His
battles with his "inner dragons" is let loose in a "fury of wild abandon" everytime he plays his 20 year old ARIA PRO II guitar. Joe's style of playing and song writing
abilities range anywhere from the hottest riff driven compositions to delicate chord progressions that carry you like a leaf in a summers breeze. If you like great guitar playing in a hard rock vein then you don't want to
pass up this chance to hear one of the best that Texas has to offer.

SMOKIN' JOE does'nt simmer "HE BURNS".
We've followed Smokin' Joe since the release of his 2nd CD:
KEEP IT REAL on Bi-Polar Records 2001. Just as I start wondering what else this Texas Guitarist will come up with he releases his new CD WINDOWS on Bi-Polar Records 2002.
This Cd contains 10 new original songs written by Smokin Joe. 7 songs with vocals and 3 instrumentals. This is album oriented rock at its best. A DIY CD of the highest calibur.
All instruments are played by Denson. With the exception of the drum machine which was programmed by MachineGun Pete
De La Paz. All in all I give this CD a solid 5 stars.

Michael Leonetti

Man those are some great solos!!!
Joe, one of these days I'd like to hear you do an unplugged/
acoustic version of a couple of those songs.
WOW man, I can't beleive,you'll never loose your touch.
Love Ya Brother, and Keep On Jammin!!!


Joe has established himself as axeman deluxe
Smokin' Joe Denson-"WINDOWS" (Bi-Polar Records 2002)
Joe is back with a vengence, after his last two albums "INTO THE MADNESS" "KEEP IT REAL" also on Bi-Polar Records. Heavily influenced by Jimi Hendrix,Frank Marino and Joe Satriani. Joe has established himself as axeman deluxe, and the mind-bending guitar work here is a tribute to that obsession. He is a Master of the instrument,and has extended that talent to the point where he may well be the next "guitar hero".
With 10 new songs he has offered you a "WINDOW" to his soul.

Steve Ribnikar

This is the next step in Joe's musical evolution.
I would've given it 5 stars, but I've been following Joe since long before he started releasing his own CDs. This offering is where what I've seen in real life is starting to "stick to the tape". Some artists are great on tape, but disappointing in a live format. Joe is just the opposite. Until now his recordings have only hinted at the power and passion of his live performances. As a recording artist, he's finally beginning to come into his own.
