O’s Notes: Every once in a while we get a disc that features a young jazz musician exploring the art form creatively with their own music, new tunes and creativity reflecting on today. This is one those discs and it keeps to the spirit of traditional jazz! Sean is a young trumpeter with strong chops who employs Orrin Evans (p), Obed Calvaire (d), Luques Curtis (b), Kahulul Bell (perc), Brian Hogans (as) and Walter Smith (ts) to help deliver his message. While they stick to a straight-ahead theme the music is easily accessible. Erika vin Kleist (fl) adds spice to a couple of tunes notably “Life Cycles” and Carolyn Perteete breathes soft tones into the lone vocal “Letter Of Resignation”. Sean is an impressing artist with a message that should be heard by jazz aficionados!
