Dennis Jones - "Passion For The Blues"Dennis Jones - "Passion For The Blues"
{Release Date: Jan 1, 2005 | Label: Bluerockrecords}

"Passion For The Blues" is a continuation and appreciation for the music I love. It's straight ahead blues-rock with a few exceptions. Recorded at Slideaway Studio, Shadow Hills CA in 2006 all but tracks 7 & 10 written by Dennis this 10 track CD is a keeper.

1 – No Mo’ – Good opener with solid beat and bass line.
2 – Super Deluxe – Upbeat 4 bar groove. Great licks
3 – When I Die – Heavier blues sound more like today’s best
4 – Passion For The Blues – Delta fingerprints all over this cut. Best cut on the CD
5 – Graffiti – Nice little shuffle blues ditty
6 – You’re Wrong – Nice kick ass blues. Upbeat shuffle with a drivin’ bass line
7 – I Just Want To Make Love To You – Down and dirty contemporary blues cut
8 – Something Good – I’d guess--Bobby Bland influenced --this is great blues with good mojo
9 – Automatic Love – Again, a great up-tempo shuffle blues. Cool words. 2nd best cut.
10 - Slam Jam – Soundin’ like the great Roomful of Blues cut of this.

This is Dennis’ 2nd release and there’s not a bad cut on this disc, it pulls a 4.8 out of the STLBlueometer and it sits in my “play it again” pile or in my car. I frequently repeat the title cut #4, this is Cornbread’s favorite as well. Nice job to Dennis and his band, Michael Turner, Drums, and Kenny Gray, Bass, others helped but these guys carried the load. Later – Gator.
