While keeping one foot firmly planted in the roots he came from, this Maple Blues Award winner believes that appealing to a younger audience is the most important way to ensure the evolution of blues-based music. Musicians that tour with Jones; Jansen Richard (drums) and the heavy grooves of Laura Greenberg (bass) always add a powerful energy to the stage. Charlie Musselwhite says "JW has done it again. Another fine CD of great tunes, guitar playing and arrangements. He sings his blues with authority." His last few CDs have hit #1 on B.B. King's Bluesville on Sirius-XM Radio in the U.S.A., and Jones continues to win over audiences across the globe with his high-energy live performances.
