Chris Jones, well-known from the Nautilus Tour 2002, where he appeared as a guitar-virtuoso, arises on his solo-Album as a productive songwriter and impressive vocalist.
“Sometimes an album appears that’s so solid musically and sonically you’d be hard-pressed to find a flaw in it, and Roadhouses & Automobiles fits that description. As a singer, songwriter, and guitarist, Chris Jones is in fine form here. The recording is state of the art, and the arrangements do an excellent job of enhancing the performances. Jones’ guitar and voice take center stage while additional instruments weave their way into the soundscape subtly and effectively. Jones’ nimble fingerstyle guitar i son display throughout the album, and his delicate and cleanly-executed phrasing – not to mention a lovely melody – make the instrumental “Jolanda’s Wedding March” a standout cut. Roadhouses & Automobiles has been a favorite at audio shows, and it is on the TAS Super LP list.” – Jeff Wilson, The Absolute Sound, October 2019
