Ok. Everybody knows by now, that Jose Pardo is an incredible and virtuso guitar player. A lot of us have had the chance to see his performance in the best blues festivals and yes, we´ve all been amazed and excited about his talent and understanding of the language of the blues.
As a matter of fact, when you talk about such an accurate and precise guitar player, you think all of his cds are going to be a tehcnique and speed show off.
However, That´s Right! is nothing but a fine blues and swing record.
The guitar is still present and leading the whole thing, but Pardo´s vocals are taking a big part in this . So is melody, taste and the band.
The cds includes Pardo´s originals songs , both in English and Spanish, and versions of all time classics .
You can find Chicago Blues, like Me estás llamando, Texas Blues ala Srv like Stopping me cold, west coast Blues in Mi mujer se enojó, Ronnie Earls style in Vamonos a Chicago, and even a surprising funky version of Django Reinhardt´s Minor Swing.
It´s been a long time since a blues record was as enjoyable as Pardo´s That´s Right!

"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.
“… 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)
“…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
“…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..” Corky Siegel ( USA)
