A definite highlight was a concert with the great B.B. KING, in december ´94, which J&TBJ has been the opening act for. B.B. KING was really impressed and invited the band after the show in his dressing room and this is his comment:
B.B. King:
“I´m no critic. I never would say this music is bad - this music is good. I listen to all kind of music. I listen to jazz of famous jazz musicians and it doesn´t move me. I listen to blues of famous players and it doesn´t moves me. But, yeah, this music does! This music really moves me. You have a unusual sound, … really, a unusual sound. I love this kind of modern blues! You can count on me, if you like you can use what I said in your papers - I mean what I say. What you are doing is very good. You have a good beat, good arrangements, good horns, good musicians - everybody, it´s well done, the harp is great - what you want more ?
Gentlemen, I’m really sorry that I only could listen to your music for a short time. But I tell you - what I heard was really excellent! Absolutely”

Ralph Pennland:
“I heard this music and thought: Damn, what a band is this ? A few weeks ago I had recordings with Koko Taylor and Albert Collins and I tell you this band is good too ! Call me, Frank, if you are sick - I would love to sit in”

Peter Erskine:
“Wow, good fat beat - I like it!”

Sterling W. Reaveley, Promoter Columbus/USA:

“Pretty good, …pretty good!! Please send me this CD.
It sounds great, good played and it’s modern. Fucking good.”

“Sehr gute Band. Erstaunlich modern und vielseitig. Wirklich eine CD, die sich positiv aus der Masse hervorhebt.”

“Gefällt mir ausgesprochen gut. Für unsere Breitengrade ungewohnt kalifornisch; sprich laid back, virtuos und perfekt im Klang.”
