You will need to modify your query to select the values that you want from other objects, Contact.Account.Name in this case. You might want to take a look at the API documentation at http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/api/index.htm. Look in 'Understanding API Calls -> Sforce Object Query Language -> Select' for the correct syntax.

[Wouldn't it be great if there were a way to send that as a URL rather than having to spell it all out.]

For the record, you can right click on the content frame in the doc and get the specific URL you are looking for - ie http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/api/Content/sforce_api_calls_soql_select.htm
