  • Chicagoan Shawn Maxwell formed his style early on while growing up in the rich musical history of the Joliet, Illinois school music programs. He earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Music from Millikin University in 1999. His debut release, “Originals” showcased Maxwell’s composition, arranging, and production skills while also highlighting the impressive skills of his group. Neil Tesser wrote, “His alto timbre sits in a lineage exemplified by past giants like Jackie McLean and Eric Dolphy, and by such latter-day players as Arthur Blythe and Steve Slagle.” Howard Reich wrote, “Maxwell’s scores proved as unusual as his taste for instrumental color, the pieces shifting from jazz-swing rhythm one moment to classical downbeats the next, from bebop phraseology to long and incantatory phrases to perky, funk-tinged melody making… Nobody writes like this.”
