Mason’s music is...exceptionally groovy. – NPR

Renowned for his innovative approach and versatile musical expression, pianist and composer Sean Mason has established himself as a prominent figure in jazz. As the leader of the Sean Mason Quartet, he is celebrated for his original compositions that meld the intricacies of jazz with diverse musical elements, showcasing a remarkable breadth of style.

When Mason speaks about music, you can hear the notes falling into place. The cadence of his ideas unfolds with deliberate tempo, each exploring and resolving tension like an inspired chord progression. He has emerged as a guiding luminary in music, shining his introspective command through the historic lens of jazz to distill the essence of the genre for our time, even as it points the way forward.

Born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, Sean took to the piano at the age of 13, teaching himself by ear to play the styles of music he was most attracted to. His approach quickly evolved into a highly original language. Sean’s unique voice in jazz is steeped in the sound of the south, allowing an extended time for groove while also displaying a vocabulary far beyond his years. Mason’s artistry is a testament to his ability to navigate and integrate various musical landscapes, making him not just a jazz musician but a versatile artist of the contemporary music scene.
