Album Notes
"If you saw the Kevin Costner film "The Postman," you may remember the tattered folk rock ensemble featured in that film. Jono Manson was the rag-tag front man on guitar, and also composed some of the music for the film. It has been too long since we've heard from Jono here at True Blue, but his newest release, "Summertime" (Sunset Records) let us know that he sure hasn't been idle since we saw him last. The truth is no moss will ever grow on this rolling stone, as he jumps back and forth across the big pond between US and European tours. With a devoted following in Italy, Jono continues to draw new fans to the fold wherever his travels take him. The new release features Jono's signature blend of folk, rock, blues and soul, with infectious grooves of "Jr. Walker Drove the Bus" and "Please Stop Playing That Didgeridoo," culminating in the almost hypnotic strains of the closer "Summertime's Almost Over". Jono Manson continues to deliver his own road-tested and proven brand of soulful roots music in this new collection. We hope to see Jono come our way soon for a live date!"
Ellis Kell - True Blue - Quad Cities

"Jono’s back! After lying low for a few years, Manson seems to be gigging everywhere. And he has a new album, his first solo record since 2001’s Under the Stone. "Summertime" is pure white soul, featuring a funky, horny (great sax and trumpet) band. Several cuts stand out. “Jr. Walker Drove the Bus” is an upbeat tribute to the “Shotgun” man, utilizing a passage of Walker’s “What Does It Take (to Win Your Love).” “Ends of the Earth” is a soul ballad that would make Robert Cray jealous and features a cool organ solo. Manson gets almost swampy on “Red Wine in the Afternoon,” with a tasty slide guitar and mandolin. His humor shows through on the rocking “Please Stop Playing That
Didgeridoo.” His irritation with the hippie didj player grows as the song progresses. “If you don’t stop, I’m going to break it in two,” Manson
growls. “You ain’t no aborigine/in your tie-dye T. ... Take your hacky sack ’cause them’s the only balls you’ve got.'"
Steve Terrell/Santa Fe New Mexican
