“The passing of the great Freddie Hubbard in December of 2008 was a humbling reminder of the continuum of life and music. But he has undoubtedly left a profound legacy with a plethora of fine young trumpeter’s…most certainly Sean Jones,” says ALL ABOUT JAZZ.
GRAMMY® Award-Winning Trumpeter & Composer SEAN JONES is a musical chameleon and is comfortable in any musical setting no matter what the role or the genre. He is equally adept in being a member of an ensemble as he is at being a bandleader. Sean turned a 6-month stint with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra into an offer from Wynton Marsalis for a permanent position as Lead Trumpeter, a post he held from 2004 to 2010. Sean has released 8 recordings, the latest is his acclaimed 2017 release 'Sean Jones: Live from the Jazz Bistro'. Sean has been prominently featured with a number of artists, including Illinois Jacquet, Jimmy Heath, Nancy Wilson, Dianne Reeves, Gerald Wilson and Marcus Miller. Sean was selected by Miller, Herbie Hancock & Wayne Shorter for their Tribute to Miles tour in 2011. "Sean Jones trumpets high-energy jazz," states the CHICAGO TRIBUNE. Quartet includes 2x-GRAMMY® Nominated Pianist ORRIN EVANS; Prolific Bassist LUQUEST CURTIS & Acclaimed Drummer KOLEBY ROYSTON.
