About the Album

Take the trip and prepare to dig "The Seeker" as tenor saxophonist Sean Nowell strikes back with his second session as a leader for Posi-Tone. Follow along as we encounter a few familiar faces, like pianist Art Hirahara and drummer Joe Abbatantuono who return for their second adventure with Nowell. Our journey begins with a "New York Vibe" and moves on to discover "meaning of the blues" but we are quickly off into the mystic lands and faraway places where every stop is filled with new and wondrous things to discover, like bassist Thomson Kneeland, cellist David Eggar, and guitarist Nir Felder. All that was once familiar to us somehow now feels boldly rediscovered as Nowell wields his horn with a fiery passion and leads his group onward in a romantic quest to discover the secret of his heart's desire. So jump on the magic carpet ride and enjoy a musical journey with Sean Nowell as he travels through a harmonic wonderland of fantastic melodies and sounds on "The Seeker."

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
