JW Jones Bringing Blues Joy to The Garage

Saturday night The Garage, Swansea filled as we waited for Canadian Blues. Opening the proceedings tonight singer/songwriter Sam York. He shared a selection of his own work including Safety In Numbers and Crazy World. He entertained sharing that this is not his first time in Wales as he has previously played guitar with another – Jones, Tom! With a short break the second Canadian Act of Bluesdoodles in a few days stepped on the stage.


JW Jones Bringing Blues Joy to The GarageJW Jones is known for a high-energy show his Gibson Les Paul is magical putty with the deft Jones fingering. This award-winning act is in Swansea tonight showcasing his latest album Belmont Boulevard. This is a trio that has been exciting venues wherever he has played on the first U.K. tour for this pure blues trio. Accompanying JW on the stage were bassist Laura Greenberg and Mat Lapensee on drums. Opening with a great R&B instrumental to warm the venue, the perfect introduction for the Swansea crowd. The music flowed as the blues shaped some rock n’ roll and the rhythms were sharp and energetic then laid back and moody as the blues colours shifted tempo. The licks, riffs and hooks were silky smooth as the show unfurled with cadences of excitement. The stage was neat and tidy, no clutter from pedals and leads. Like JW the stage was as clean as the guitar sound. The Rhythm section was tight with flourishes that augmented the deep shifting urban blues Chicago in Swansea tonight. The medley showcased the slick guitar sound with Howlin’ Wolf and Willie Dixon linked by snippets of Smokestack Lightnin’; the lead breaks were lengthy but always swirling with innovation and the guitar at times physically wept. The drumming was deep and the bass a dark counterbalance to JW’s zinging energy from his six-strings. An instrumental medley of styles bought whoops of recognition as we heard Hendrix Bo Didley and so many more. This was blues entertainment not a churning out of one delightful tune after another. JW connected teasing the audience we were an integral part of the show.

JW Jones WM-8380Another track from Belmont Boulevard, Watch Your Step is energetic R’n’B at its best with solid rhythms giving JW the space to exploit his immense talents to the full. Buddy Guy and Jimmy Rogers visited The Garage tonight courtesy of the band. Then we had a change of tact, French Toast and it was “let’s swap instruments”. JW now the drummer, Laura lead guitar and Mat on Bass. This was fun and we loved the energy of the show and at the same time the authenticity of the blues that ran through your spine connecting your ears with your tapping feet. Following this as the show drew to a close a medley that was truly Name that Tune! This was mixed up guitar magic as we moved from Pop to sapphire sparkling blues and then a TV Theme tune and a hint of Rock, this was no mish-mash as the constant was JW Jones consummate guitar magic. There was one more piece of stage trickery as all three played the guitar at the same time, the behind the back playing for Laura and JW. These tricks showed the skills and the love of the blues. For Maria it will be always be a night to remember as JW danced with a pretty lady and played guitar without missing a note.

JW Jones Bringing Blues Joy to The GarageHigh quality entertainment with drumstick used as slide and superlative authentic blues guitar Canadian JW Jones makes his guitar talk and walk the blues.
JW was delighted to make Wales the 22nd country he has performed and wowed the crowds in. Back in the land of his fore-fathers his guitar playing was mesmerising and his vocals warm as they enhanced the whole experience. Swansea heard and felt the sinews of blues emotional magic weave around the venue tonight. Come back soon JW Jones.
