The Willie Jones Sextet LIVE at Dizzy’s

January 16, 2012

With an unparalleled style of rhythmic expression, drummer Willie Jones III is one of the world’s leading jazz drummers. In addition to honoring his monumental influences – the late greats Philly Joe Jones, Art Blakey and Billy Higgins – Jones’ bold articulation and constantly innovative sense of swing are results of his life-long musical experience.

A conscientious hard-bop drummer with a very clear and very firm grasp of jazz history, Mr. Jones pays tribute to Max Roach, one of his role models, with a band that features Jeremy Pelt on trumpet, Steve Davis on trombone, Stacy Dillard on saxophones, Eric Reed on piano and Dezron Douglas on bass.
Come on out for some live jazz this week at Dizzy’s!
