Shawn has delivered a fresh-take on contemporary jazz , that features a trio of trumpet players on different tunes . Victor Garcia, Cory Wilkes and Chad McCullough all have moments to shine bright on the 14 original compositions of Shawn’s.

The group is rounded out with the talents of Matt Nelson on keys, Junius Paul bass and Phil Beale drums.
