Artist Feature: SEAN DRABITT

Sean has shared the stage with the likes of Betty Carter, Mike Stern, every of the Marsalis brothers, and he also leads his own Jaco tribute band in Victoria BC. He recently sent me some righteous sounding recordings of his band along with the following performance notes:
