Willie Jones III is the drummer for grammy-award winning recording artist Roy Hargrove whose first disc as a jazz leader was released in 1990. Roy, who is considered by many to be one of the premier trumpet players on the music scene today, has long had a fascination for, and love of, R&B, Funk, and classic Soul music. Willie had a long standing relationship with the jazz trumpeter and when not collaborating with Roy or Herbie Hancock , Willie is composing and recording his own solo releases. His latest is entitled Vol. 2...Don't Knock the Swing.
