Love Jones celebrates lounge crooners, especially those lubricated with stiff cocktails. A drunken romp of a CD and one of the great unknown neo-lounge albums.

Love Jones played any sort of pop music that could fit that label -- pop, blues, R&B, bossa nova, doo wop. Former Squirrel Bait and Lemonheads drummer...
