Sean Jones

In episode one of BNY Mellon presents JazzLive @Home, we visit with acclaimed bandleader, trumpeter, composer, educator, and activist Sean Jones. The Ohio native has performed with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, the SF Jazz Collective, and with jazz legends Nancy Wilson, Diane Reeves, Marcus Miller, Herbie Hancock, and Wayne Shorter among countless others. He now serves as the Richard & Elizabeth Chase Chair of Jazz at Johns Hopkins University’s Peabody Institute in Baltimore. Join us as we catch up with Sean to hear how he's been spending his time, learn about his favorite Pittsburgh memories, and much more.


The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has been able to bring world-class arts experiences to the Cultural District — and to your home during this time of intermission — for more than 35 years. During this critical time, please consider supporting the Trust and this special art form.
