Over the course of six albums, Sean Jones has steadily advanced the art of jazz through his playing and compositions. The former lead trumpeter of the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra stepped down from that exalted position in 2010 to join Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock and Marcus Miller for a major European tour. He soon released his sixth career album, No Need For Words (Mack Avenue), and focused more intently on his own career as a bandleader and recording artist. Anyone who thinks of jazz as an overly serious and cerebral art form just hasn’t seen the man whose soulful swing and physical charisma have left Jazz Standard audiences shouting for more. “There are few trumpet players as good as Sean Jones!” (Bob Karlovits, Pittsburgh Tribune Review)
