Glenn Jones' debut album This Is The Wind That Blows It Out was originally
released in 2004 on CD-only by Strange Attractors Audio House. We are
proud to give this timeless classic a first time vinyl issue.
Glenn Jones is a master of American Primitive Guitar, a style invented in the
late 1950s by John Fahey, whose traditional fingerpicking techniques and
wide-ranging influences were used to create modern original compositions.
Jones, who led the post-rock ensemble Cul de Sac, brings his own made-up
tunings, the use of custom-crafted partial capos, and a highly skilled picking
style on both banjo and guitar, to create personal compositions that are lyrical,
emotive and elegant. What sets him apart from the myriad guitarists playing
today is his ability to tell stories with the guitar and banjo, and to convey a
range of emotions. This process starts with the compositions themselves and
carries through to his selection of recording environment and engineer.
This Is The Wind That Blows It Out stands the test of time in today's avant
folk movement with Glenn Jones emerging as a clear leader. His pensive
sentimentality and playful spirit, not to mention his innovative technique, have
become just as ingrained into the style's DNA as any hallmarks of the original
Takoma school.
Opening with the title tune, ''This Is The Wind That Blows It Out'' meanders
with heady grace, ''Delta-delica'' slide guitar as intoxicating as it is mournful.
''Fahey's Car'' bounces and shimmers like some of Peter Lang's classic Takoma
sides, and Linden Avenue Stomp is an alternate take of a old-timey duet with
the late great Jack Rose.
Jones turned away from standard tuning years ago, inventing tunings as a way
of escaping the known, his 2016 album Fleeting gained much critial acclaim and his convivial live performances prove him to be a compelling storyteller as
well as an outstanding muscian.
