Dandy Dave Wakefield Jonathan, thanks for the cool & chill at these times. The songs and sound ring with the intention to enthrall & entrance. I listen to zone out or to focus on tasks.

I appreciate the PDF sheets As a plinkin' guitarist (rock country), I hope to master the music, evolving to jazz.

Rokas Jonathan's live front porch swing guitar sessions on facebook got me here. That cozy, mellow and warm guitar sound is a real gem Favorite track: Buffalo Convention.

andyfernguitarist A wonderful recording. Jonathan's playing is sublime, as ever. But this surprise release feels special, appropriately stripped back and raw. Terrific. Favorite track: All Cooped Up.

japlaysmusic As well as being the consummate swing guitarist, Jonathan flexes his compositional muscle with "Front Porch Swing" - a must listen! Favorite track: Front Porch Swing.
