Looks interesting. Is that the Willie Jones who played with Monk and others in the 50´s ? That was the Brooklyn Scene then..... Max too. 

And I remember my disappointment when I bought "Charles Mingus Quintet plus Max Roach" which has Willie Jones as the regular drummer and I had hoped that "plus Max Roach" means TWO DRUMMERS, but it was only two tunes, where Roach replaced Jones (but anyway, a fantastic record, even if it does not have two drummers). See, this was the time of "Prime Time" , so stuff with two drummers was interesting for us drummer freak youngsters.....

No, Willie Jones III is a very active drummer on today's NYC scene. I think he must be the grandson of the Willie Jones who played with Monk and Mingus on the 50s.

Check him out at Smalls via YouTube. He's very good!

Hmmm. . . good point about Mose days.

Right now

Milt Jackson, Wes Montgomery "Bags Meets Wes" DCC gold cd.

I mean there's also Wynton Kelly, Sam Jones and Philly Joe Jones. It can't miss and it knocks it to the edge of the park.
