Jon Cleary & the Absolute Monster Gentlemen

GRAMMY® Award-Winning R&B/Funk Band JON CLEARY & THE ABSOUTE MONSTER GENLTEMEN pay homage to the classic Crescent City keyboard repertoire created by such icons as Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Domino, Professor Longhair, Art Neville, Dr. John, and James Booker - while also using it as a launching pad for a style that incorporates such other diverse influences as '70s soul and R&B, gospel music, funk, Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Cuban rhythms, and much more. Jon Cleary & the Absolute Monster Gentlemen consist of Cleary (Keyboard/Vocals), Derwin "Big D" Perkins (Guitar), Cornell C. Williams (Bass/Backup Vocals), and A.J. Hall (Drums). "Cleary can be an absolute monster on his own, but Cleary's full combo R&B is as broad, deep and roiling as the Mississippi river, the combined swinging product of local keyboard tradition, Cleary's vocal-songwriting flair for moody Seventies soul and the spunky-meters roll of his Gentlemen." - ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE
