alone, raining

New music by Sean Egan

Alone, Raining CD cover by Sean Egan

  • Eleven instrumental compositions on piano, clarinet, saxophone, whistle, and percussion

“…truly a piece of art, seamlessly weaving together bold strands of contemporary chamber music, avant-garde jazz and a global rhythmic approach, with a touch of eastern mysticism – and a generous portion of “yiddishe blues” exuberance. Outstanding work…”- Jeffrey Jones Music Director/PM Edition Host WOJB-FM 88.9

“A phenomenal display of creativity and virtuosity. The range of color and emotion is astounding – from the gorgeous, flowing, meandering melody of Riverstory to the hard driving rhythms of Graffito to the wild klezmer clarinet and saxophone of What?, Sean’s talents and imagination seem limitless.” – Marlene Pauley, clarinetist & conductor of Family and Education Concerts, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra

“…an unabashedly personal statement… recommended for the obvious creativity involved and the courage of the artist to go his own way.” – David Kane, Cadence Magazine
