Boogaloo Joe Jones: Legends of Acid Jazz Vol. Two

Read "Legends of Acid Jazz Vol. Two" reviewed by Douglas Payne


In the few years he recorded and performed (roughly from 1966 to 1978), guitarist Ivan “Boogaloo Joe" Jones (b. 1940) never really got his due as an exciting, rapid-fire R & B plecterist. His sound and style clearly derived from blues. But it was a solid understanding of rock that Jones brought to his style of jazz. The result, outlined on a handful of Prestige albums, was a healthy mix of finger-licking funk, sweet-natured soul and infectious blues.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
