Following a stellar year for the masterful guitarist, Glenn Jones will be releasing his debut album This Is The Wind That Blows It Out on vinyl for the first time ever on January 27th, 2017. The album was originally released by Strange Attractors Audio House in 2004 on CD only and features a duet with Jones and the late Jack Rose. From Strange Attractors Audio House:
“At long-last, the time is nigh for Jones to release his debut solo album. This Is The Wind That Blows It Out - Solos for 6 & 12 String Guitar is a collection of stylistically ambitious, utterly sublime acoustic steel-string compositions, proving beyond a shred of doubt that Jones is of a rare class of modern compositional guitarists in today's burgeoning avant folk scene.
In the spirit of the great Takoma Records releases of the 60's and early 70's, This Is The Wind That Blows It Out winds its way through rich expanses of varied stylistic terrain, charting a rich and unique course. "American Primitive" folk and blues, Spanish guitar, slack-key, rustic Mississippi Delta slide and classical forms cozy up fluently to one another, sometimes within the same tune. Glenn Jones' fingerstyle and slide technique is on dazzling display, guiding the music across scenic vistas of mood and color."
Recently, Glenn Jones released his most ambitious work to date, Fleeting, which was named one of NPR's best solo guitar albums of 2016 and received praise from, Pitchfork, Premier Guitar, Guitar Player, and more.
