about

Barbecue Bob in Fishtown is Glenn Jones' 3rd album, a disarmingly elegiac foray into wider and deeper streams of ever-chiming steel string.

Returning to Martha's Vineyard where Jones recorded his previous masterwork (Against Which the Sea Continually Beats, Strange Attractors, 2007), Barbecue Bob in Fishtown explores the possibilities of classical composition within American folk forms and solo instrumentation. Its precisely this stylistic melding which sets Jones apart from his modern-day acoustic underground brethren. Jones is able to discover and project wide-screened cinema from just 6 & 12 strings, coaxing vivid panoramic images from his sparkling fingerstyle playing. Experimentations with tuning and various capos of his own invention are wed with delicately expressive playing and a remarkable compositional prowess. Barbecue Bob in Fishtown also finds Jones' performing solo on 5-string banjo for the first time on record, exhuming the spirit of Clive's Original Band as seen through a Dock Boggs-esque prism.

Barbecue Bob in Fishtown distills the best qualities of Jones' musical vision into a finely honed summation of his distinctly singular style. A timeless recording, one to be held up as one of the best examples of the genre by a unique player dubbed by writer Bill Meyer in Signal to Noise as "…an elder amongst the disciples".
