With an extremely able crew of exciting sidemen– with powerful frontline showings by Brad Mason and Michael Dease and the stellar keyboardisms of Art Hirahara and Adam Klipple, alongside the steady rhythms of wunderkind bassist Evan Marien and explosive drummer Marko Djordjevic– the impetus and inspiration of the music remains clear when Sean Nowell kicks up his chops and swings hard with effortless mastery and melodic brilliance on his saxophone! Sean Nowell’s latest release “The Kung-Fu Masters” is a poignant and focused collection of performances that will certainly entertain jazz geeks and music enthusiasts with energetic amazement and melodic delight
