Biography

Handy Award Nominee LA Jones has been tearing up the floorboards in roadhouses all over the world for the last three decades, touring constantly and playing over 200 gigs a year and thrilling Blues fans where ever he performs.

L.A. Jones represents a new breed from the old school of the blues; crossing racial, spiritual and musical boundaries. Drawing from his past experience playing and recording with many of the great Blues stars like pianist Pinetop Perkins , guitarists Otis Rush , Jimmy Rogers, Luther Johnson and saxophonist Joe Houston he has pioneered a style that is all his own, blending the ever popular jump swing of the great Texas and West Coast traditions. At the same time he has not forgotten to remain deeply and firmly rooted in the 1950’s Chicago Blues traditions.

LA Jones is an entertainer FIRST AND FOREMOST in the business of show-biz. Over the years L. A. Jones has honed these entertainment skills to a razor sharp edge, bringing down the house using dynamics reminiscent of the mind-boggling technique of Buddy Guy or the note economics and soul-searching feel of his hero, B.B. King . In addition he uses many different tunings on as many different guitars (both right and left-handed) that keep people talking and musicians fighting among themselves.

There is not a gig that L. A. Jones plays without some pleased patron commenting on left handed guitarist L. A. Jones’ ability to effortlessly switch between left and right handed guitars and play either with equal facility and at the same time produce totally different and totally incredible sounds and styles.
