Sean Jones & Dwayne Dolphin

April 27 @ 7:00 pm


Two jazz icons, Dwayne Dolphin and Sean Jones, join together in Pittsburgh to create an unforgettable night of music.

Local jazz stand-out Dwayne Dolphin is a mainstay in the jazz scene, working with Pittsburgh greats such as Roger Humphries, Pete Henderson, and Carl Arter. Throughout his career, Dolphin has played and recorded with the “Who’s Who” of music, such as Nancy Wilson, Melba Moore, Fred Wesley, and Abby Lincoln. Dwayne Dolphin’s vast and diverse experience has allowed him to lend his musical expertise in many areas. These include working with the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre’s Indigo In Motion production and serving as an Adjunct Professor of Jazz at Duquesne University.

Trumpeter and composer Sean Jones is considered a musical chameleon, comfortable in any musical setting no matter the role or genre. He has previously performed in the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and is featured on three Grammy Award-nominated albums by Dianne Reeves, Nancy Wilson, and Gerald Wilson. Jones was lead trumpet for Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and the SFJAZZ Collective and is now with the Baltimore Jazz Collective. Jones is an internationally recognized educator, currently holding the Richard and Elizabeth Case Chair of Jazz at Johns Hopkins University’s Peabody Conservatory and is Artistic Director of Carnegie Hall’s NYO Jazz ensemble.
