As the Years Go Passing By
'The first time I saw José he knocked me off my feet. It´s really amazing to see a young kid play like the pro he really is.." Michael Burks.USA " ...He´s a monster. It´s great for me to hear him play. He is one of the few that can really play and understand the blues..." Little Charlie Baty. USA. "...to add more, besize his unique control of the guitar, Pardo showed off, as if he had been raised in the Mississippi Delta, an absolute familiarility with the songs of his set list, and a deep emotional connection with one universal language, the Blues, emerged 9000 kms north of his looted home " Livin Blues Magazine (2006) USA "... a real killer instinct when he recreates, with ferocious ease, classics of Robert Johnson, BB and Albert King, or even Chuck Berry, who is emulated by Pardo in the use of his Gibson. The argentine slinger dominates his guitar in an appalling way, with astonishing, versatile and furious skills." Arantza Amezola ( 2007-09-28) Gara Newspaper ( Spain) "...It seems that Jose can handle all subgenres of the blues with first class material,.. Jose Pardo and the Mojo Workers is a versatile blues band, they know how the blues should sound: sincerely and honest!..." Bobtje Blues Pages. Belgium "... JL makes miracles with his guitar; a constant present to the listener" Phillip Le Guennec . France. "...Serious Blues, the good one, if I may say, because that is what this boy of the southern half of the world, that without being neither black nor American,generates when he attacks the six strings. It also makes you think that an Argentine like Jose Pardo can be a true Bluesman. Let's be honest, pain and suffering do not lack there.... When Jose Pardo plays the Blues, he does it lovingly..." Claudio Gabis. Argentina "...the energy of Michael Bloomfield, a great feel, and a total of at least 20 fingers.."
