"Manson thoughtfully penned each song on the album. For many tracks, Manson paired up with a long-time collaborator. The artistic chemistry of the co-written songs creates a unique sound for each cut while remaining in the bounds of a profoundly personal collection of songs. The product is a 13-track album that transcends genre and incorporates those who worked with and inspired Manson along his multi-decade journey as a musician. The tracks skip from Americana to R&B then back to Roots-Rock. With the help of his superstar friends such as Joan Osborne, James Maddock, Terry Allen, Eric Schenkman, and Warren Haynes, Jono Manson has arrived as a legend at album number ten." - American Songwriter Magazine 02/01/20
"Manson, long a New York fixture, but in recent years ensconced in Santa Fe, is a four-decade veteran of rootsy rock. The Slight Variations finds him co-writing with Caline Welles (his wife) and old pals Chris Barron (Spin Doctors) and Joe Flood. With its bluesy guitar riffing, honky-tonk piano, and gospelish female backing vocals, "Rough and Tumble" recalls the Rolling Stones, except more vital than they've been in years. There are also songs of sweet tenderness (but never sappy) and some thoughtful material that elevates Variations above the roots-rock norm. One of my favorite albums of 2016."
