Nobody writes like this. Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune
As a composer, recording artist and performer, saxophonist Shawn Maxwell has endeavored to express his own unique voice. From his latest album Millstream (Jazzline, 2020) to his debut Originals (self-released, 2005), he has released nine albums of original compositions. The traditions of jazz form the foundation for Shawns music; he builds on that with material from the music he grew up with rock, funk, hip hop, R&B, classical. The result, as Hrayr Attarian wrote in Chicago Jazz Magazine, is refreshingly distinct yet recognizably Maxwellian. Hes not intent on following any rules or on breaking them but on continually expanding what his music encompasses.
