KU Jazz Ensemble I with special guest Sean Jones, trumpet


Wednesday, November 11, 2015 - 19:30

For the remarkable composer, trumpeter, educator and activist Sean Jones, the pursuit of jazz is a most serious endeavor. He discovered jazz and the trumpet at ten years old upon hearing Miles Davis. After receiving his master’s degree from Rutgers University, Jones toured and performed with his own ensembles and held the position as lead trumpeter with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.

He continues to perform, record and teach while serving as chair of the Brass Department at the famed Berklee School of Music. At the Lied Center, he will perform with the University of Kansas Jazz Ensemble I led by Dan Gailey, director of Jazz Studies. The ensemble and its members have received numerous DownBeat Magazine Student Music Awards during the past two decades, including four in the category of Best College Big Band in the U.S. or Canada.
