Brian Ashley Jones 'Out of the City' - Self Release

This album is blues-tinged rock with some tasty guitar licks and warm Hammond organ riffing. This is the third release by an artist who has a sound rooted in country with rock and bluesy influences. Jonell Mosser duets on Fetch a Pail and the backing vocals of Suzi Ragsdale are a strong feature on the 10 songs included here. Out of the City is a country groove while the restrained harmonica on Free to Miss You dovetails perfectly with the sweet guitar breaks of Brian Jones. Meet me in the River is a blues workout with plenty of guitar to the fore and Carolina’s Dream has some fine fiddle playing on the standout track here.
