"Deep In The Heart"
his last album, From Austin with Soul, this title references
both W.C. Clark's Texas home base and his R&B leanings.
Once again produced by horn player Mark "Kaz" Kazanoff,
who also contributes harmonica, sax, and punchy brass arrangements,
this is a classic soul lovers delight. Clark's grease-and-gravy
voice is exhilarating, dripping with emotion and changing
his inflection to boasting, hurtful, tough or tender depending
on the song."
"It's a terrific contemporary soul release that meshes
blues and R&B into an explosive combination, and shows
the veteran Clark at the peak of his powers."

Blues Band: "Defibrillatin'"
Jimmy Witherspoon, T-Bone Walker, and Dave Specter, J.W. Jones
is the sort of person who likes a lot of jazz in his blues.
Defibrillatin', the Canadian guitarist/singer's debut album,
doesn't cater to bop snobs -- Jones doesn't spend all of his
time trying to show you how fast he can play John Coltrane's
"Giant Steps" or Sonny Rollins' "Oleo,"
but he does sound like the sort of bluesman who has spent a
lot of time listening to guys like Jimmy Smith and Jimmy McGriff
(not to mention T-Bone Walker). And he plays the sort of jump
blues and blues-jazz that comes naturally when you like to blow
and improvise..." ~ AllMusic
