    While working in a mainstream context, contemporary Ohioan trumpeter Sean Jones is far from the staid Young Lions of the early 1980s. For instance, he's unafraid to infuse his brand of neo-hard bop with easygoing crossover-type elements (shimmering electric piano, smoothly melodious flute) and his originals possess a bright, easily accessible ambiance. Make no mistake--Jones's music is still straight-ahead jazz, albeit with a sweet coating. His approach has the technique and fortitude of hard-bop masters Kenny Dorham and Freddie Hubbard but the charm and melodiousness of Chris Botti and Chuck Mangione.

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (p.58) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Working with a core group of five players, two of them saxophonists, trumpeter Sean Jones flexes more than sufficient muscle to conjure the illusion of a big band on this compact package of mainstream modernism."
    JazzTimes (p.92) - "An excellent and highly appealing outing that should garner Jones the same kind of attention that has been paid to his trumpet colleagues Nicholas Payton and Jeremy Pelt."
    Record Collector (magazine) (p.91) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] scintillating straightahead set...There are stylistic echoes of horn legends Clifford Brown and Freddie Hubbard..."
