“Like a snake charmer, Jones took a ramshackle bar crowd and pulled it under her spell. Her music was a soulful combination of jazz and R&B. The friends agreed that she was too polished to be a Phoenician; she must have been from LA. But then Jones paused between songs to say that her mom was giving out CDs in the corner and that her dad was taking pictures. So she was local. But no time to think about that because the friends were too busy dancing to her music. Everybody was dancing now. Even her. Jones had stepped from the stage and was moving among her new fans. This was unheard of in Phoenix. When the show ended, the friends fought the newly minted throngs of adorers to get me an interview with Jones for Phoenix Art Space. ”
