Laurence Jones, Temptation. Album Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * * *

Not since a certain young Joe Bonamassa stood on the stage for his debut performance has anything sounded this good for the very first time.

Laurence Jones is a revelation, a man who has left the murky world of desire and flown straight headlong and true into an album of incredible depth and feeling that the listener maybe forgiven for wondering at what point did they cross a boundary between fact and dreamlike narrative fiction. The lure of lute in a medieval poets hands was surely just as enticing as they made their way across the land thrilling all with stories, tales and fables, now for the 21st Century Laurence Jones entices and persuades easily as he steps out from behind the line of Blues know how and announces himself completely with the album Temptation.
