Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola

Willie Jones III Quintet

With drummer Willie Jones III, pianist Eric Reed, trumpeter Terell Stafford, tenor saxophonist Stacy Dillard, and bassist George DeLancey

“…the strongest thing about a strong album, recorded live with a band including Eric Reed on piano… is the intense, ordered, disciplined energy of Mr. Jones as an improviser of trap-set concertos.” - The New York Times

Willie Jones III is one of the world’s top jazz drummers, known both for his distinct style of rhythmic expression and for honoring monumental influences such as Philly Joe Jones, Art Blakey, and Billy Higgins. Jones has a storied background as a sideman with artists such as Herbie Hancock, Roy Hargrove, Hank Jones, and Kurt Elling, but for the last 17 years he’s also 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. As always, Jones has an elite band enlisted for the gig. Fans of no-frills, small group jazz at its finest should go out of their way to catch one of these sets.
