He worked with European and U.S. musicians as Claudio Fasoli, Tino Tracanna, Marcello Tonolo, Mimmo Cafiero, Marco Di Battista, Franco Cerri, Malcom Ball, Geoff Warren, Phil De Greg, Bob Ferrazza, Tom Sheret, Michele Di Toro, Tobias Ott, Rita Marcotulli, Michael Roachford, Badal Roy, Karl Potter, James Thompson, Garrison Fewell, Tony De Caprio .

In '97 published his first CD with the Italian label Splasch Rec.: 'SUITE & SONGS', which interested several jazz magazines in Italy and abroad. His second CD as leader , 'MINIATURES', was released by Splasch Rec label too, on october '98 and a new work for MAP Records,'DUETS', with Claudio Fasoli, Garrison Fewell, Geoff Warren and Tino Tracanna ,was published on 2001.His latest CD, with Fourtet DESIDERIO was published on 2003. This new CD has been produced by Maurizio 'Bozorius' Bozzi for Drycastle records. 'Bass Express è un album coraggioso perché evita di circoscriversi alla musica afroamericana e proietta la riflessione sonora sul contrabbasso in una dimensione planetaria (America, Europa, Asia) e lungo l'asse del tempo, giungendo al 1723 (La Sonnerie de Sainte-Geneviève du Mont de Paris di Marin Marais - allievo di G.B. Lully), dopo aver accarezzato il '900 con quattro preludi di Erik Satie. A ben vedere l'album ha un'impaginazione precisa, accurata, narrativa che impedisce - almeno artisticamente - un ascolto con sequenze casuali. I primi quattro brani sono riletture, arrangiamenti, adattamenti di brani del repertorio classico. Segue una sorta di bridge jazzistico (C.Q.) che porta a tre composizioni ispirate all'India, tre mantra contrabbassistici con centri tonali diversi, scritti da Sebastiani. Ancora un bridge, la partitura di Marais e si arriva ad altri tre pezzi, questa volta marcatamente jazzistici ( la coltraniana Equinox e l'ellingtoniana In a Sentimental Mood, più l'originale Bass Express). Nella macrostruttura dell'album è prevista una coda, con una melodia del folclore abruzzese che chiude il cerchio. Si tratta, in definitiva, di una sorta di album multitematico schematizzabile come segue: brani classici / bridge jazzistico / brani indiani / bridge classico / brani jazz / coda folk. Un'intera carriera sonora, un'intera esistenza vengono, così, sintetizzate.' [ Luigi Onori ]'
