Willie Jones III
Warning: Last items in stock!
Willie Jones III explores the soulful side of jazz, performing tunes by his former employer and great influence Cedar Walton, and debuting new arrangements of tunes by Eric Reed, Buster Williams and more. Groundwork key tracks include the title tune and ‘Hindsight,’ both by Cedar Walton. Eric Reed’s ‘New Boundary’ is a tribute to modern jazz musician Dwayne Burno. Throughout his career, Willie Jones III has lent his supple rhythm and buoyant spirit to artists like Cedar Walton, Milt Jackson, Horace Silver, Sonny Rollins and Roy Hargrove. Today, he continues to become one of jazz music’s most sought out bandleaders.
