You may not think a band with traditional bluegrass instrumentation and guys who've been around the musical block more than a few times could remain fresh, much less grow even better with each new CD. But when it comes to the Bay Area band Houston Jones, think it. I first got turned on to the band with "Calico Heart" two CDs ago, but the group's new one, "Queen of Yesterday," is in a class by itself...

Houston Jones was rocking its rootsy blend of bluegrass, blues, folk and gospel long before The Avett Bros or Mumford and Sons started climbing the charts. These world class musicians are having so much fun that it is easy to forget how sophisticated down home Americana can be. Queen of Yesterday was recorded, mixed and mastered at Cookie Marenco's OTR Studios so you know the sound quality is on the money. That's how you do it, son.
