Big Twang Guitar

"Jinx is a guitar virtuoso who seamlessly moves from rockabilly to jazz to twang and back again, sometimes in the same song. Those with a liner note obsession will remember Jinx’s playing on En Vogue’s “Free Your Mind.”

(San Francisco Chronicle)

“Jinx Jones is out there. Four or five nights a week, the great guitar player with the immaculate pompadour can be found at various Bay Area venues, working the stage, doing his thing. The Colorado native came up serving as a sideman to rock ’n’ roll royalty, playing with the likes of Chuck Berry and Solomon Burke.”

Aidin Vaziri, San Francisco Chronicle’s pop music critic, 2014

Westword, Dec. 2022:

East Bay Express, Nov. 2022:

“Imagine an advanced guitar textbook on 10. Listeners all will doubtless be thunderstruck by Jinx's authoritative command of labrythinian note aggregates, lightning- fleet navigations, and esoteric chordal modes. One intuits they are in the twang-upholstered, jazzy Court of a flat- gone Monarch, one for whom fair Aoede is a favored midnight-hour ship.”

DC Larson, No Depression
