Sean Jones Quartet

Sean Jones, trumpet

 Leading “a powerhouse quartet” that can “hit hard from the outset and never give up,” Sean Jones possesses a formidable “arsenal as a trumpeter, including his sleek phrasing, pinpoint tone, exclamatory high notes, fleet technique and freedom from predictable phraseology” (Chicago Tribune). “Sean Jones, the former lead trumpeter of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, never hides behind anything or anyone when he plays… His sound can be bright, buttery or bold at different times, or even all at once, and his gaze can move from steely to sweet in a heartbeat. He can marry beauty and pure power like few others” (All About 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” (JazzTimes)
