"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."
