Dave King is a standout jazz drummer who brings what’s been dubbed a “propulsive” style to bands like the Bad Plus, Alaska and Happy Apple. With the Dave King Trucking Company, King brings his appreciation of the group dynamic to new levels with a current lineup comprising Minneapolis-born, Brooklyn-based Chris Morrissey on bass, Brooklynite Chris Speed on saxophone and clarinet, and Minnesotans Brandon Wozniak on saxophone and Erik Fratzke on guitar.
