EDITORS’ NOTES

A modern master of the so-called American Primitive guitar tradition associated with John Fahey, Glenn Jones recorded this solo acoustic album alone with his engineer in a house beside New Jersey's babbling Rancocas Creek. His unconventionally tuned Guild guitar sounds exceptionally present, bright, and crystal clear. There's a sun-dappled splendor to "Mother's Day," while birds and chirping crickets accompany his almost symphonic fingerpicking in "June Too Soon, October All Over." Jones also performs three palette-cleansing banjo solos that are no less melodically surprising than his guitar tunes.
