MP3 Fernando Jones - Stranded
Like rockin'', burnin'', cutting edge Blues guitar players with new ideas? Well, Fernando Jones has something for ya. An enhanced CD with a live b&w film performance on a Chicago rooftop directed by D.P. Carlson (feat. on NBC Dateline 2/25/05).
12 MP3 Songs
BLUES: Guitar Blues, BLUES: Chicago Style
"Fernando Jones has been on a Blues crusade in Chicago since his college days in the mid-1980s. He has produced a play, I Was There When The Blues Was Red Hot, authored a book with the same title, written Blues poetry, produced Blues shows, is a Blues educator and leads his own Blues band. Stranded is his latest self-produced CD and it shows that the singer, composer, guitarist, bassist and Blues harpist can indeed "walk the walk." The 12 original tunes, along with a video for "How Many Times," cover a range of Blues, R&B and soul styles. The title track is an atmospheric medium tempo, funky minor key Blues where Jones croons a lover''s lament and then adds a sharp-edged solo and fills as counterpoint.
Jones is totally dedicated to playing, promoting and promulgating Blues. He is to be encouraged and lauded for his efforts."

Well, I''m stranded in another woman''s heart. She treats me like a dog, but she holds my ace card. Hey, I''m stranded in another woman''s heart. The only thang that pulled me through was you, baby.
Yeah, Now, I''m puttin'' food on another man''s plate, and I eat cold cuts when I get home ''cause I get home to you too late. Well, I''m stranded in another woman''s heart. The only thang that pulled me through was you, baby.
Well, I''m easy to hold, hard to control. Well, I''ve got a stainless steel black cat bone, and a mojo hand made from Dutchman gold. It''s just one thang I need you to know. I''m easy to hold, hard to control. Well, I''m easy to hold. Hard to control.
Well, don''t just hug me, baby, squeeze me. Don''t lick your tongue out, baby, tease me. ''Cause I''m easy to hold, hard to control. Well, I''m easy to hold, hard to control. It''s just one thang I need you to know. I''m easy to hold, hard to control. Well, I''m easy to hold. Hard to control.
Welcome to the real deal, Camille. Sit back and relax ''cause if you don''t like the Blues you''ve got a hole in your soul. Your Rock won''t roll, and your Gospel and Jazz is out of control. Welcome to the bottom. Welcome to T''s.
I want a pretty woman to kiss. I want a pretty woman to miss. I want a pretty woman so bad, so bad. I need a pretty woman to drive me mad. Drive me mad.
I can''t eat and I can''t sleep. The woman I love, she don''t even speak. I need a pretty woman so bad, so bad. I need a pretty woman to drive me mad.
I want a pretty woman to hold. I want a pretty woman to soothe my soul. I want a pretty woman so bad, so bad. I want a pretty woman to drive me mad, drive me mad.
Sometimes she forgets she''s beautiful. One look in her amber eyes and see pure soul. One day it''ll hit her [just] what she means to me. She makes me more than by myself I could ever be. Tracey, I''m crazy. Crazy about you.
Blushing face in her hands on a long distance call. [She] opens a parcel from a man that she barely knows at all. She says, "I haven''t gotten you anything. You''ve taught me how to love unconditionally." Tracey, I''m crazy. Crazy about you. Crazy about you. Tracey, I''m crazy.
I should have never gave you my heart. Should have known better right from the start. I never thought I''d see the day you''d turn your back on me. When you''re on the bottom, and I''m on top. I ain''t gonna love you no mo'', [but] right now I cain''t stop.
Every day''s a new day for everybody else. Today''s a blue day you got somebody else. Cain''t have a conversation without bringing up your name. On a sunny day all I see is rain. When you''re on the bottom, and I''m on top. I ain''t gonna love you no mo'', [but] right now I cain''t stop.
Mama''s baby boy. Come on with it, Fernando! Get on down. That''s what I''m talking about. Blues time. Hey! Cain''t stop.
Jazzman, Jazzman, why don''t you sing the one about the man who loved the woman who didn''t love herself? Jazzman, Jazzman, why don''t you sing that one about the woman who loved a man and he up and left? I look as l listen. Your words, they hypnotize. I hang on every note I listen to your instrument''s eyes.
Bluesman, Bluesman, sing me a low down, sing me a low down dirty Blues. Sing me the one about [the] little boy with two left shoes born to lose. Bluesman, Bluesman, sing me the one about how everyone''s got more than you, and how most certainly you have paid your dues. I look as l listen. Your words, they hypnotize. I hang on every note I listen to your instrument''s eyes.
How many times won''t my telephone ring? Hey, and I''m spending every quarter I get. I get. Well, I know you love me, baby. You just have a tough time showin'' it.
How many times must you cry like a baby? You leave my sheets soak and wet. Soak and wet. Well, I know you love me, baby. You just have a tough time showin'' it.
Now I''m standin'' in the rain. Trying not to get my feet wet. Tryin'' not to get ''em wet. Well, I know you love me, baby. You just have a tough time showin'' it.

Fernando Jones, a self-taught musician, is one of the most complete Bluesmen of his generation in the world. Mr. Jones was just featured in the December ''04 issue of Chicago Magazine. From books to films, from sound recordings to theatre productions, his contributions to the Blues have been paramount. However, he began performing, playing the guitar, and writing songs when he was four years old. Jones has been called a Renaissance man.
Jones has been recognized and celebrated by his peers and the press as being on the "cutting edge" of the Blues. This young man added new blood and a new perspective to the legacy of the Blues and its culture. As a composer, he has taken great pride in performing his original works publicly to help insure the evolutionary development of this musical movement.
He is always lobbying for the proper recognition of this indigenous African-American art form and its people. While refuting the many negative stereotypes that haunt this music, Jones is on a mission to show people the joy and beauty through academic implementations, lectures, and concert performances throughout the world. As a result, Jones'' hands were photographed by National Geographic Magazine.
His book, "I Was There When The Blues Was Red Hot" (available on https://www.tradebit.com), has been used as a resource by the likes of Newsweek, the Chicago Sun-Times, the Chicago Tribune, and Living Blues Magazine. TV and radio stations such as ABC, the BBC, CBS, CLTV, NBC, WTTW, and WGN have celebrated him for his playing style and unique perspective on the status of Black music in America also.
As a playwright and actor, Jones received critical acclaim from the Chicago Tribune, Sun-Times, UIC Alumni Magazine, and received Jefferson and Black Theatre Alliance Award nominations.
Fernando is a proud member of the National Alliance of Black School Educators'' Chicago Area affiliate - CAABSE; Real Men Cook; American Federation of Musicians (Local 10-208); Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI); the Chicago Blues Festival Planning Committee, and is the founder of Blues Kids of America with endorsements from: Fender Musical Instruments; Dean Markley Strings & Electronics; Jim Dunlop Guitar Picks & Accessories.
