Album Notes
Forward-thinking trumpeter and composer, Jon Crowley was born in Malvern PA, a suburb of Philadelphia, in 1982. He began studying the trumpet at age six with Elin Frazier, a student of Carmine Caruso. While in high school he developed an interest in Jazz and began attending local jam sessions and sitting in with various musicians around Philadelphia. Jon spent the next four years attending Muhlenberg College, studying Jazz with Charles Fambrough and John Swana. After Graduating with his B.A. in Music, Jon went straight to New York City, where he attended NYU, graduating in the Spring of '07; receiving his Masters in Jazz Performance and Composition. While at NYU, Jon studied with Laurie Frink, Kenny Werner, Ralph Alessi, George Garzone, Brian Lynch, Joe Lovano, Don Friedman and Dave Pietro. Jon has played with Charles Fambrough, John Scofield, Lenny Pickett, Chris Potter, Ralph Alessi, Joe Lovano, and Don Friedman, and has performed around New York City at venues such as The BlueNote, 55 Bar and Lincoln center. Since graduating, he can be seen performing around New York City and the Northeast both as a sideman and with his own groups. Jon has also just released his first CD; Connections

"Connections'[..] reveals Crowley to be a formidable talent on the rise. His taste leans towards meditative, harmonically deep compositions that create an atmosphere for exploratory solos. [...]- a thoughtful jazz explorer, happy to crest and undulate on waves of harmonic color as he caravans his way toward the horizon"- AllMusic

”Jon is a very inquisitive individual. He brings a sense of curiosity to his work that is contagious” --John Swana

“Jon is an ambitious, young trumpeter and composer who had a bright future ahead of him. His compositions have a freshness about them due to their interesting harmonies and modern sensibility” --Dave Pietro
