Twofer from Detroit Jazz Festival on JazzSet: Sean Jones, Jeff Tain Watts
June 11, 2012. Posted by Becca Pulliam.
From last summer's end, to set the stage for a new festival season, listen to JazzSet.
Trumpeter Sean Jones leads his group in music from his CD No Need for Words. Then Marcus Strickland (above) -- with Lawrence Fields, piano; Christian McBride, bass; and 2011 DJF Artist in Residence Jeff Tain Watts on drums -- brings full focus to Tain's closing set, especially the sign-off piece, "Attainment."
Hear a sample in the promo above. Come back for more, Wednesday at 6:30pm.
