Willie Jones III Sextet
With Eric Reed, Warren Wolf, Jeremy Pelt, Stacy Dillard, and Vicente Archer
If you're a fan of straight, swinging jazz and bop, Willie Jones III has you covered. The award-winning drummer has a storied background as a sideman with artists such as Herbie Hancock, Roy Hargrove, Hank Jones, and Kurt Elling, but for the last 13 years he has been producing records—both his own and those of notable contemporaries—on his WJ3 label, with a strong emphasis on swing and traditional jazz rhythms. Jones III has extensive experience at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, as well as with members of his sextet, which features Eric Reed on piano, Warren Wolf on vibes, Jeremy Pelt on trumpet, Stacy Dillard on saxophone, and Vicente Archer on bass.
