Paul " Wine" Jones (July 1st, 1946 - October 9th, 2005) was a singer and guitarist of Blues black American born in Flora, in the Mississppi.
Like number of bluesmen, Paul Jones learned the very young Guitare in the family circle. Later, it carried out many work in the farms of the surroundings, the fields of cotton and as a Soudeur before reaching a relative celebrity as from 1995 thanks to the round organized by the production company Fat Possum. The latter organized indeed, a series in concerts gathering several bluesmen amateurs of the Delta, the occasion for some of them (like Paul Jones), to play for the first time out of the State of the Mississippi.
The success of this round opened the doors of the studios to him where it recorded, in 1995, its first album, Mule in which it arranged a certain number of standards of blues in a rather innovative way, playing in particular with the Pédale wah-wah. Its second and last album, Pucker Up Buttercup , appeared in 1999. The last years of his life, Paul Jones will give several concerts in Europe.
His/her brother, Casey Jones is a Batteur of blues which played with Albert Collins.
