Positively Entertainment Ranks Lloyd Jones with Best of Blues Legends

Jeff Shivers of Positively Entertainment ranks Lloyd Jones with the best of the blues legends, and other legends...

"Ah, The great Northwest and the legends it provides. There are the classic legends of the past, like Paul Bunyan with his blue ox Babe. There are other blue legends living among us now and Portland, Ore. seems to have quite a few...

"Then there’s the most revered of blues legends, the six-string gunslingers, guitar pickers and legendary blues men who have worked the clubs and theaters of the west coast for decades. They range from Terry Robb’s nativist blues guitar style to the classic Blues Brothers of the northwest, Norman Sylvester and Lloyd “Have Mercy” Jones, who can play any style blues anytime, anywhere and always seem to attract the cream of the crop when it comes to the musicians joining them.

Jones’ release of the new CD 'Doin’ What It Takes' has created some interesting situations for which Jones has found creative solutions...

"Jones’ new CD Doin’ What it Takes features a nine-piece orchestra. It features some great dance tunes like I’ll be Right on Down and Ruby Do. The title track is a full-blown funk blues tune with some blistering lead guitar and smoking hot saxophone leads. The whole CD really captures that big, butt-rockin’ sound that is big band blues." — Jeff Shivers, Positively Entertainment
