Willie Jones III Quintet


Joe Magnarelli [trumpet]

James Austin [piano]   
David “Happy” Williams [bass]   
Willie Jones III [drums]

Willie Jones III, one of the hardest swinging drummers in modern jazz, is also an important bandleader who leads groups with undeniable chemistry. Willie has worked with an impressive list of artists including Roy Hargrove, Arturo Sandoval, and Hank Jones and is a noted record producer and label owner who has released several critically acclaimed albums as a leader. The New York Times states, “He comes from a line of percussive descent established by Kenny Clark, and later modified by Philly Joe Jones; he’s more than comfortable with polyrhythm, but it’s straightforward swing that suits him best.” His inspiring quintet features trumpeter Joe Magnarelli, alto saxophonist Justin Robinson, pianist James Austin, and bassist David “Happy” Williams.
