Jinx Jones / Bio

“Magical' rings as insufficient when looms the real article. Jinx proffers alacritous dexterity and excruciating elegance, integrating rockin' with country with jazz with blues. May shame you into selling your own guitar.”
David Larson, Rockabilly Magazine, July, 2007

“Jinx Jones and his trio serve up fine examples of American Music, all with Jinx playing the living hell out of the guitar.”
John Heidt, Vintage Guitar Magazine, June, 2007

“A wonderful recording that is a pure, heartfelt 6-String celebration.”
Darren Fox, Guitar Player Magazine, June, 2007

In Jinx Jones’ impressive musical career he has visited nearly every conceivable style and genre of the electric guitar. From his work with R&B divas, En Vogue to his own acclaimed rockabilly albums, “License to Twang,” and the latest release; “Rumble & Twang,” Jones has always strived to expand the possibilities of the instrument. He accepts every musical challenge head on, always making an impressive statement with his music. The one thing that remains consistent throughout Jones’ multi-stylistic journey is the grace and finesse of his virtuoso playing.

“One thing that really sets Jinx Jones apart is his obvious knowledge and love of jazz and chords. Almost all of the solos feature a section that’s a trip through chord-city. By the time the single notes start to fly, you’re really impressed by his know-how.”
--Vintage Guitar Magazine, August, 2001

“San Francisco’s Jinx Jones’ knack for stellar guitar is both a feast for tone aficionados a lovely stroll down memory lane.”
--Guitar Player Magazine, March, 2001
