Both CDs reviewed by BIlltown Blues. "Swing Blues gets no better than this. Even the likes of the great Louis Jordan would have to give this one two thumbs up. The instrumentation is flawless, yet overflowing with emotional power...." http://www.billtownblues.org/cdreviews2012.html
Another review of both new CDs on The Sunday Night Blues Project: "Doug Deming & The Jewel Tones are making a new thing out of the old-skool blues, and the results are highly addictive...Dennis rips the roof off with a chromatic harp workout...just swings with loads of energy and style. Seeing these guys live would be a treat!" http://sundaynightbluesproject.blogspot.com/2012/12/doug-deming-jewel-tones-and-dennis.html
