"Jones seemed to barely move a muscle above his shoulders, propelling the flow with deep focus, impeccable time and a keen instinct for conjuring combinations of rhythm timbre most apropos to each environment. Throughout the set, he displayed a mastery of diverse feels"
"From a musical standpoint they (Jeff Rupert and his band) could be right at home alongside Glenn Miller or Tommy Dorsey. Bat Suit notwithstanding, I enjoyed the heck out of this work by the Flying Horse Band. What’s next guys, “Mission Impossible?”
"Trumpeter Terell Stafford accomplished a difficult task at the Manchester Craftsmen's Guild Saturday night: He practically stole the show from alto sax star Bobby Watson and the band Horizon."

Willie Jones III does what few musicians can do; he can transition from a respected bandleader one night to a faithful sideman the next. He does this by letting his drum skills do the real talking, gaining respect through his high-profile performances and sold out shows. Learn more about Jones here.
Jeff Rupert‘s career covers nearly every aspect of music. From performing at the Kennedy Center, recording with Benny Carter, to becoming a YAMAHA performing artist, Rupert has well earned his title as one of jazz’s greatest saxophonists. Learn more about him here.
The story of Donald Vega himself is great, yet his piano skills are somehow even greater. Vega fled Nicaragua to come to the United States when he was just 14, and since then has routinely been championed as one of the jazz industries next biggest hits. Learn more about Vega here.
Terell Stafford can play. Don’t take it from us, piano legend McCoy Tyner said Stafford is “one of the great players of our time.” Well known for his legendary trumpet pieces, Terell has had the opportunity to perform with big-name artists like Cedar Walton himself. Learn more about him here.
There isn’t a lot about Bill Cunliffe that hasn’t already been said, and it’s safe to say that his accomplishments speak for themselves. Best known for his Grammy-winning Arrangement of “West Side Story Medley,” Cunliffe is an industry giant for a reason. Learn more about him here.
Ralph Moore has been playing the saxophone professionally since he was a teenager. Rising to fame by performing for 15 years on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Moore has been steadily releasing more singles and performing in clubs across the United States doing what he does best – making music. Learn more about him here.
The WJ3 All-Stars are in a class of their own. Defined by their crowd-gathering performances and humbling through their awe-inspiring skills, this group of jazz greats has certainly earned not only their reputation, but their name as well. Learn why the WJ3 All-Stars are so sought after here.
