Will Monson


Band to Join, Piano, Keyboard, Saxophone, Trumpet, Bass Guitar.


I am a jazz drummer looking to play in a trio, but would consider a quartet or quintet. I like to play standards and straight-ahead material, as well as more "out" type playing. I like to swing, but will also play some funk and straight-eighth material. I have good ears, and like ballads, mid-tempo and up-tempo stuff. I can be contacted at WmMonson.
