Sean Jones


With Roots, Sean Jones continues on his path of exploring distinct and varied grooves, moods, and themes. On his rendition of the Ellington tune "Come Sunday" as well as "Lift Every Voice," a tune considered the "Black National Anthem," he’s more laid-back and reflective rather than assertive and attacking. Still, the prime thing for Jones as a player, composer or leader is never repeating himself, nor becoming content and detached in his approach.

A major event in that evolution occurred when he chose to step down from his longtime position as Lead Trumpeter of the Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra in 2010. But touring with Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock’s Tribute To Miles the following year made a truly profound impact on his personal journey. Celebrating his 10th anniversary with Mack Avenue Records, internationally acclaimed composer/trumpeter Sean Jones views his 7th album, im•pro•vise (never before seen), as “a reintroduction of who I am.” Although he has clearly established himself as a formidable leader through recordings and live performances, this album reflects his “conscious decision to approach this latest step in my artistic evolution as a trumpet player, a composer and a leader.”
