Warren L. Jones III - I Imagine So...
Best Song: This honor has to go to the best-named song on the album, "Indigo Bunting." Yes, jazz is hard to discern unless you exclusively listen to jazz and can thus tell the subtle differences and other nuances in a given album or song. What is not difficult to tell about Jones' music is that he is an accomplished and skilled musician. I might shock some people by saying this (not really), but I don't listen to a whole lot of jazz. That's not to say I don't like it -- Cinematic Orchestra's Live at the Royal Albert Hall was one of my favorite albums of 2008 and I know a thing or two about New Orleans jazz and funk. That being said, it's easy to tell on "Indigo Bunting" that Jones has surrounded himself with some of the Valley's finest talent -- Fred Forney, Jerry Donato, Tim Downs and Joe Garcia all provide stellar contributions on their respective instruments. "Indigo Bunting" is one of the more fast-paced, rambunctious tunes on the album and it features some pretty whimsical 'bone from Mark Witt.
