Trumpeter Sean Jones is a firebrand musician who is known for the emotional depth of his trumpet playing and composing. Says Jones, “I like to play from the heart and not the head.” He is inspired by hard bop and is particularly influenced by the music of legendary trumpeter Miles Davis. Sean Jones was featured on the 2007 Grammy Award-winning Turned to Blue from Nancy Wilson. As a bandleader, Jones has released six albums under the Mack Avenue Records label. He performs with his own groups both nationally and internationally, and was a lead trumpeter for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (under the musical direction of Wynton Marsalis). Jones often plays at music venues and jazz festivals such as the Monterey Jazz Festival, Detroit International Jazz Festival and Montreal International Jazz Festival and toured Europe last summer with Herbie Hancock, Marcus Miller and Wayne Shorter.
Community Music Center would like to thank San Francisco Performances for bringing Jones to our stage for this free, community concert.
