Composer/trumpeter Samantha Boshnack's primary small ensemble as a leader, the Sam Boshnack Quintet, thrashes and bounds through tightly-woven twists, tunnels, and cliffs with the deftness and precision of a chamber ensemble and the weight of a rock band. Boshnack synthesizes a dazzling array of musical influences in her sophisticated yet fun, highly original compositions from intricate chamber writing to lush jazz panoramas and funky brass band-inspired grooves. They recently released their second album - Nellie Bly Project on Artists Recording Collective to critical acclaim. Written about the 19th-century daredevil feminist and journalist, the music moves between the narrative and abstract, creating an imaginative world that channels Blys groundbreaking spirit.
The band (formed in 2011) features some of Seattles most accomplished improvisers and has been hailed as "delightful, surprising....explorative and intriguing phenomenally innovative musicians with a unique signature sound that owes as much to their, on the spot, ingenuity as to Boshnacks original writing (All About Jazz). The Sam Boshnack Quintet is: Samantha Boshnack (trumpets, voice & compositions), Beth Fleenor (clarinets & voice), Alex Chadsey (piano, keyboards & voice), Isaac Castillo (bass) and Max Wood (drums).
