My old friend - Jimmy Jones
« on: May 10, 2014, 05:31:51 PM »
I lost an old friend this week. Jimmy Jones was a friend I played with back in the early 70's. Great guitarist and one of the nicest guys you'd ever want to meet. He remained active in the central Texas music scene for over 45 years. He will be missed by many.

These are two of Jimmy's originals:

This is Jimmy's first recorded song with Knights Bridge Quintet (1967):

Sorry for your loss. I loved that first song, "Old 42" ! In the second song I like the way he hit those harmonics. They sound almost like "pinch" harmonics. And, after listening to the last song a couple of times, it's "Sorrow in C major"!

Thanks for the condolences.

At my age, it seems I get this kind of news all too often. Don't take your friends for granted. You never know when their number will come up, or your own for that matter.
