ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Royal Jones and his brilliantly talented team of funksters are obviously having musical as well as lyrical fun, moving from the snappy, playful jazz/funk of "Keep Your Hands to Yourself" to the smoky piano lounge feel of "Echo." The one suggestion I would make for the next album is that the vocals do need to be turned up a little – the voice does get a little overpowered by the instrumentation. However, the sass still comes through...

Royal Jones' "A Dear in the Head Lights" Recorded in NYC at East Side sound studios ...The eclectic acoustic funk set was produced by Janice Friedman playing keyboards thoughout as well as collaborating on 5 songs.Also featured is the incredible Buddy Williams on drums: Leo Traversa on bass: Rogerio Boccato percussion: Myoshi Marilla and Chevis Packer provide vocal support on several tracks. Guest appearances by Lily White and William Galison complete this well rounded original offering of accoustic jazz/funk. Recorded live , it's indescribable and full of surprises and originality...
Jones quips” they told me to git down.....and I did”....
...somehow in the process of life itself I’ve become jazzy..nice place to visit....

A Dear in the Headlights
"A Dear in the Headlights" has all the fun,sassiness, imagination, groove, jop and pazz I've expected from the fabulous Royal Jones! One song that grips the depth of my heart is his sensational version of "Come What May". I wonder how did he know that it is one of my favorite songs of all-times!

A Dear in the Headlights
The tracks and background singers are pro-jazz musicians. However, Royal Jones' very unusual vocal styling gives this CD a different spin. I enjoy it because it is unique. Makes me smile as I listen.
