Willie Jones III is truly one of the most exciting drummers we have on the scene today. Now in his early fifties, Willie has much to share in terms of where jazz drumming has been and where it's going. I've wanted to bring him into my DL for a while and ask him about the many hats that he wears. Enjoy this great musician and his music...

Saxophonist, Eric Wyatt has a new release on Whaling City Sound (The Golden Rule...for Sonny) that pays homage to the one and only Sonny Rollins. As a family friend, Sonny spent a lot of time with Eric's father and mother and even referred to Eric as his Godson. The influence of Sonny Rollins on Eric is certainly realized within the tracks of this recording... and the life-lessons passed down from Sonny to Eric add such meaning to the music. I think you will 'The Golden Rule...' to be most appealing on a number of levels.
