Trumpeter Sean Jones dropped by the SFJAZZ Center to talk jazz education. A masterful improviser with a feeling for the post-bop 1960s music of Miles Davis and Freddie Hubbard, Jones leads a crackling quartet featuring pianist Orrin Evans, bassist Luques Curtis, and drummer Obed Calvaire, a member of the stellar SFJAZZ Collective. The Sean Jones Quartet shares a double bill with fellow trumpet ace Christian Scott during The Festival of the Trumpet on Aug 21, 2014, part of SFJAZZ Summer Sessions.
Special thanks to San Francisco Performances for facilitating the interview.
