“. . . gorgeous luminous settings . . . scored across a series of open tunings, which he threads with beautiful rolling melodies, his slide work soundings like the flutter of tiny metal butterflies... one of the best .” — The Wire

“His tunings are counterintuitive and mesmerizing; his use of partial capos and muted strings is novel and intriguing. But to Jones' great credit, those only feel like tools for telling stories.” - Pitchfork

"Glenn Jones' music is remarkably intimate: It feels so close, you'd swear you could reach out and touch the airwaves vibrating between strings.” - NPR

“Jones ..a brilliant scholar whose technical virtuosity is, fortunately,
matched by an emotional intelligence that shines through”
- Mojo

“It’s a remarkable set of music – as most of Jones’ solo albums are – that continues push the American primitive tradition into new directions using a narrative style that’s become his trademark.” - Acoustic Guitar
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.
