L.A. JONES (usa)
& THE BLUES MESSENGERS
-ZAGREB-ZADAR-SPLIT-ŠIBENIK-
Americki blues virtuoz trese Hrvatsku!!!

“ L.A. savija, vuce, tuce, cekica i sabija vlastiti stil gitaristickog bravada s intenzitetom i uzbudenjem koje nadilazi klupske granice. Iako ekspert za zabavu, on svojim opusom pokazuje da je i kao autor ucio od velikana kojima je nametnuo vlastite obrate i zaplete kako u strukturi tako i u melodiji .“; Bobby Owsinski;  Eurojam International.    

L.A. Jones je blues gitarist koji unatoc veteranskom stažu ne odustaje biti zabavljacka atrakcija bez premca. U jedinstven stil vješto spaja široku lepezu utjecaja od kojih možemo navesti tek neke: Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, B.B. i Albert King, koje cesto namjerno cak i doslovno citira. Na koncertima dodatnu atraktivnost postiže korištenjem razlicitih gitara, štimova i stalnom zamjenom ruku koje su uposlene da kroz solo dionice dinamikom i gipkošcu publiku dovodu do ruba uzbudenja a cesto i preko njega. Jer L.A. Jones je rijedak svjetski gitarist koji jednako dobro svira desnom i lijevom rukom!

Do danas je L.A. Jones nastupio u gotovo svakoj državi SAD-a, pohodio Japan u sklopu svoje turneje kao što je ucinio u cak jedanaest europskih zemalja. Jednako se osjeca ugodno kao festivalski headliner, studijski muzicar i kao klupska atrakcija.

No, osim što je prava senzacija na pozornici on je i neumoran autor. U svojih 30-ak godina karijere ostavio je 16 samostalnih izdanja od kojih su mnoga itekako hvaljena u svijetu bluesa a i izvan njega. Izdvojiti možemo: "Somebody Been Playin' My Guitar" (1989; Barking Blues Music), "The Blues and Nothing Else" (1996, Shattered Music) te „L.ittle A.lbert“ (2006, Barking Blues Music).

Publika Purgeraja ce u srijedu 17.03.2010.g. imati zadovoljstvo ponovo vidjeti velikog meštra gitare koji je tamo pronašao drugi dom. Nakon toga L.A. ce nastaviti svoju turneju po Hrvatskoj pa ce tako stanovnici Zadra, Splita i Šibenika imati zadovoljstvo uživati u vratolomijama L.A. Jonesa!

L.A. Jones and the Blues Messengers

Well, it is official..The Shoreline Yacht Club Loves L.A. Jones!  "Hot Band!,"  "Top Shelf Entertainment!," "Good Job, Marc!"  Just a few of the many, many positive comments I received after the L.A. Jones show last Friday.  If you weren't at the show, just ask somebody that was because L.A. will be back for an encore performance- and hopefully soon.  L.A. and the boys just nailed that performance and I am so proud of them.  I have known L.A. for a long time and I am always amazed that he is not a national act- because he most certainly should be.  L.A. get's it.  He knows the smokin' blues guitar inside and out, probably forgotten more about the blues guitar than most people know, and is one of the finest entertainers I've ever seen.  L.A. stepped on the gas out of the shoot and didn't let up for two outstanding sets.  The dance floor was full to the bitter end and it was ashamed it got so late.  Here is the email I received from L.A.   "Hey!! That was phun Boss!!"  Well, it was fun for us, too L.A.!  Thanks to everyone that came out and enjoyed the show.  And Special, Special, thanks to Dawn for being tolerant of us and doing a great job with the cruise meeting.  Also, thanks to Chef Rick, Jack Daniels and Stacy for all of their tolerance, too!  We have GOT TO DO THIS AGAIN

Aloha.  Marc Wetherington

Behind the Red Door
Get thee to Watertown

by Dan Barry - January 6, 2005

I returned to The Red Door on Saturday night for a dose of the blues. Originally from Connecticut, guitarist and singer L.A. Jones brought his Blues Messengers back from California for a show in his home state. "I grew up playing around here in clubs that are long gone," he said. Jones is a cross between the austere showmen of old and a down-home bluesman. He cuts a dapper image, and has the confidence of a seasoned performer. Quick fingers, too. Jones' improvisations are controlled and conclusive, leaving no room for argument. The Blues Messengers' whiskey riffs were a great way to put a little hair on Baby New Year's chest.
L.A. Jones, back on his home turf.

W.C. Handy Nominee Mr. L.A. JONES!

LA is a wonderfully gifted left handed BLUESMAN. Years and years of playing all over
the world. Please take a minute to visit his web site. He brings genuine cool old Fenders
and Gibsons to each performance, and plays thru an old 50's Tweed Fender Amp. And he
does one of the most upbeat & swingin' renditions of Bill Doggett's "HONKY TONK" you
will ever hear! LA Jones is high-energy ELECTRIC BLUES. Period.

LA also plays both left handed & right handed guitars- he can play anything you put
in his hands. Strung high 'E' string towards the floor, or towards the ceiling...it just doesn't matter.
( I welcome anyone to come on stage and attempt keep up with him
with the strings reversed from what you normally play!)

My personal favorite part of his shows is when he plays one of his two Flying Vs. The entire vibe
of his performance changes, where upon he does incredible ALBERT KING-style single-note bends that are as gripping as the late master himself! If you dug Albert when he's on- check Mr. Jones, who you can still catch live.
