Black Lace Blue Tears..."This is an impressive debut recording by a singer who didn’t begin to work professionally until a few years ago. A West Virginia native who is now based in Seattle, Eugenie Jones brims over with confidence and authority. She sings a number of originals that are invested with aplomb and relish. Ennui, musical deconstruction, primal screaming, horn envy and emotional exhibitionism are not part of Jones’ musical vocabulary. Her strong suit is rhythm and swinging….Her medium-dynamic alto brings an unforced lyricisim to Paul Desmond’s “Take Five. 3.5 Stars”

Come Out Swingin', the follow-up to her well-received 2013 debut album, Black Lace Blue Tears, more than lives up to its title, showcasing Jones' smoke-and-satin vocals in settings that float like a butterfly and swing like a night at the Savoy.
Beyond her instantly engaging vocals and sharp rhythm instincts, Jones also happens to be a topflight composer, penning both melodies and lyrics to tunes that are completely at home in the jazz idiom.
