Reviews

 

15/08/2004 Jazzwise Magazine


'Blues Al Fresco is not for the faint hearted, or those suffering a humour bypass, Jenkins' very British take on the blues is never boring, full of unabashed playing, rich lyrical irreverence: overall, hugely entertaining.'

Mike Flynn

 

17/09/2003 The Guardian

'Blues Al Fresco catches the band at their chaotic, deadpan
best. Touches the heart, the funny bone and the soul in equal
measure.'

John L. Walters

 

24/06/2002 City Life

'Only one in 20,000 English bluesmen inhabits a recognisable reality. Step forward Billy Jenkins, anarcho guitarmeister and arch- demythologiser. Pure genius'.

Mike Butler

 

05/05/2002 CODA

'Humorous though his lyrics can be, Jenkins isn't mocking blues music. Rather he profoundly understands the emotional truthfulness at its heart. Thus in singing in his own accent about his experiences, Jenkins is actually a more authentic bluesman than the hordes of bar bands who sing "Sweet Home Chicago", in fake accents in bars from Toronto to Timbuktu. Such bands offer pastiche: Jenkins, not withstanding his unconventionality, his individuality and, indeed, his Englishness, is the real thing.'

Trevor Hodgett

 

12/11/2000 The Wire

'His phrases [on sadtimes.co.uk] smash through the iron bars laid down by Thad Kelly (bass) and Mike Pickering (drums) - eeerrrgh! - with a gestural panache that has NEVER heretofore been achieved by British electric guitarists.'
