Sean Jones Quartet
Sean Jones Quartet (USA)
Artists Sean Jones (trumpeter/musical director) and Brinae Ali (choreographer/tap dancer/vocalist) have teamed up to create a piece that fuses elements of jazz, tap, hip hop and bebop to articulate the social vernacular of the African American experience.
Music and spirituality have always been fully intertwined in the artistic vision of trumpeter, composer, educator, and activist Sean Jones, who is hailed for his “virtuosity, musicality, and sensitivity” (Chicago Tribune). Among his many accomplishments are his tenure with Jazz at Lincoln Center, where he began his relationship with mentor Wynton Marsalis. Jones serves as Artistic Director of the Pittsburgh Jazz Orchestra, is Artist-In-Residence at San Francisco Performances and is a member of the SFJAZZ Collective. Deeply committed to education and mentoring, he was recently appointed Chair of Jazz Studies at the Peabody Conservatory.
