With a title I could well imagine existing as a cautionary yet inspiring tale for young children, possibly animated by Studio Ghibli (disclaimer: before we're sued, it wasn't) The Giant Who Ate Himself - And Other New Works For 6 & 12 String Guitar is a beautifully crafted recording by Glenn Jones. It's something to do with the big frog with a little guitar on the front cover. Melodies are spun into fine gold thread in Glenn's expert hands, the master of American Primitive guitar that he is. LP in black or 'frog green' virgin vinyl editions, in heavy stock jacket with sleeve notes, tuning details and download card. CD version in four-panel, LP style gatefold. On Thrill Jockey.

I had no idea that Glenn Jones was in US post rockers Cul-De-Sac but there you go. You learn something every day. This is his 2007 solo album which perfectly demonstrates his style of American Primitive Guitar - the fingerpicked style invented by John Fahey. First time on vinyl for this one and I’m guessing it will be lovely.

David Greenberger, Glenn Jones, Chris Corsano
An Idea in Everything
David Greenberger is known for his story-gathering: he travels America, talking to interesting people about their interesting lives and then spreading their words. In this interesting team-up, he free-associated different stories to the improvisations of super-drummer Chris Corsano and banjo / guitar player Glenn Jones. An Idea In Everything crams 28 tracks onto two 10” records.
On Fleeting, for the Thrill Jockey label, Glenn Jones’ guitar fingerpicking is sounding rich, complex and more beautiful than ever. Jones’ unconventional tunings and ability to interlink dense melodies makes him an icon of American Primitive and Takoma school guitar playing. His unique style is perfectly balanced between technical skill and emotive playing.

Glenn Jones is a maestro of the American Primitive style of guitar playing: that sweet sweet Fahey-derived sound we all love so much. This Is The Wind That Blows It Out is Glenn’s 2004 album, now receiving a vinyl release for the first time courtesy of Thrill Jockey. Rich and beautiful music. Oh and by the way, the inner sleeve artwork includes the notes and tunings for all the songs in case you want to have a go yourself.
