Curtis Jones


The origins from the blues standard “Tin Pan Alley” could be traced directly back again to pianist Curtis Jones, who also enjoyed considerable success in 1937 along with his “Lonesome Bedroom Blues” for Vocalion (a song inspired by way of a breakup along with his wife). Jones began on acoustic guitar but switched towards the 88s after shifting to Dallas. He found its way to Chicago in 1936 and documented for Vocalion, Bluebird, and OKeh from 1937 to 1941. However the battle ended his documenting profession until 1953, when effective DJ Al Benson released a one-off solitary by Jones, “Wrong Blues”/”Great Playing Blues,” on his Bird label with L.C. McKinley on acoustic guitar. In 1960, Jones waxed his debut recording, Problems Blues, for Prestige’s Bluesville subsidiary with an elegant crew of NY program aces and Chicagoan Johnny “Big Moose” Walker on acoustic guitar. At that time, his target audience was shifting significantly, as he became a fixture around the Chicago folk circuit. His following LP, Lonesome Bedroom Blues, was a 1962 single affair for Delmark providing definitive renditions from the title slice and “Tin Skillet Alley.” Jones remaining Chicago completely in January of 1962, settling in European countries and thoroughly touring the Continent until his 1971 loss of life.
