Born in the St Thomas, Jean graduated from Berklee College and joined Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers in 1982, acting as musical director in a typical Blakey band of brilliant young musicians. After he left Art in 1986, he accepted an invitation to teach at Guildhall in London for three months and has been based in the city ever since. He works as a composer, leads his own bands at Festivals and jazz clubs around Europe and tours with leading American stars , most recently Cedar Walton, Donald Brown, Eddie Henderson and Jeff Watts. Today he teaches at Guildhall, Trinity, Birmingham Conservatoire and the Royal Academy.

His new quintet is very much in the Blakey mould, a group of excellent young musicians inspired by a charismatic leader.
