Sean Jones Quartet - jazz

“When Jones solos, soaring with a gentle strength as his band swells behind him, it’s not just a pretty melody… It’s praise” (Jazz Times)

A Jazz Orchestra of Lincoln Center and SFJAZZ Collective veteran “who combines artistry and virtuosity, with a sound reminiscent of vintage Freddie Hubbard and Lee Morgan yet completely modern” (Jazz Times), Sean Jones continues to take jazz to new heights as a trumpeter, a composer and a leader.

The Chicago Tribune notes “the pinpoint focus of his tone and hard-bop influence of his musical language, providing the best of two worlds: elegant phrasemaking and energy-charged rhythm… Even at his most rambunctious, Jones wants his horn to sing.”

Leading his Quartet to close a set at New York’s Jazz Standard, Jones delivered “his most uncorked performance, firing bullets from all over the upper range of his horn. The band blazed hard behind him, at a precarious tempo; when it was all over, the crowd seemed almost stunned into its applause” (The New York Times).
