ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"I highly recommend this disc for the listener looking for something creatively new, but built on solid foundations of traditional jazz." -Chuck Vecoli for Jazzreview.com

"This self-produced disc by Sean J. Kennedy is an impressive collection of compositions that feature some solid players from the Philadelphia area. Kennedy composed all the songs and they present a well rounded musician who not only has command of the drums but has a thorough understanding of melody and style.

I highly recommend this disc for the listener looking for something creatively new, but built on solid foundations of traditional jazz. Kennedy should be commended for his composing, and his playing skills but mostly for pulling together a killer ensemble to bring his songs to life.

THE BUZZ:

"I enjoyed your CD and thought it was quite good...keep up the good work!"
-Joe Morello
Legendary drummer with the Dave Brubeck Quartet

============

"I really enjoyed drummer and composer Sean J. Kennedy's new CD "Road to Wailea" His compositions are highly enjoyable! The compositions Seán wrote for members of his family I found most enjoyable and being a family man myself can identify with the sentiment found in each of the compositions. Whether it's a straight ahead rhythm, Latin beat or Funk groove, drummer and composer Seán Kennedy and the fine musicians on this CD take you on a great musical journey as they travel down the "Road to Wailea!"

-Eric Mintel
The Eric Mintel Quartet

============

"...got the CD and it sounds great. Love the compositions, your playing and its always great to hear Larry. Some people say you are judged by the company you keep and you keep great company. Congrats on a great project!!"

-Denis DiBlasio

-Tony Miceli

============

"I'm a strong believer in good chemistry, and Seán J. Kennedy's new CD Road to Wailea has a very strong chemistry. And the members (starting with Seán) have just that special blend. The well composed compositions work as a vehicle to bring out the talents of ALL the musicians as a unit.

-Tommy Campbell, Drummer
