Mihailo Krstic - bass. Extremely talented and very young multi-instumentalist. Also plays keyboards with Coxless Pair and Violin with Space Runners 
Goran Milosevic - drums. Another talented musician that fits perfectly into this project.

SOUNDS
MENSON BENSON SEXTET (MB6) is another D. Petrovic's brain child. This is a band formed occasionally when Dusan needs to express himself differently. This is the most Jazziest side of him and, as paradox, for this project he uses non-Jazz musicians. Here is what he says about MB6: "As a sax player, a jazz admirer and explorer, for years i dreamed of putting together a group of talented musicians who had never had any experience in Jazz and of making them react to Jazz standards. My guess was that the fact they didn't know anything about it was just going to enhance the beauty and excitement that jazz (for me) is all about. Sextet is not a real number of members but my aim is to always leave at least one or two spaces for the spirits of the past and future".
In a few words we could say that MB6 are playing deeeep Jazz with a deeeeep bass line, scratch as a part of a rhythm section and a mad, mad sax. ‘Favourite Tongues’ is probably one of the best versions ever of  “My Favourite Things” (due respect to Coltrane). Although being very Jazzy and quite heavy in sound it is a floor filler. I've tried it and it works. ZK.
