  11. “Announcing itself with a blast of amplified harmonica, “The Jack of Harps” CD proves over 10 tough, excellently recorded tracks that John Németh & The Jacks are stellar exponents of retro-style blues (with a touch of William Clarke-inspired jazziness on “Fetch That Wood”). The original songs, including the excellent off-kilter “Late Night Hour,” the soulful ”Up To No Good,” and the stoptime “Love Zombie,” flash humor and quirkiness in appropriate measure. While Németh’s confident vocals and big-toned harp are center stage, The Jacks display an enviable command of dynamics and interplay. Don’t miss this.” – Tom Hyslop, Blues Revue
