SOMETHING ELSE REVIEWS EXPLODING SYNDROME

2014-Script-Header

Sam Boshnack Quintet Exploding Syndrome“On this disc, the band sounds huge, almost orchestral, but also lithe. You could almost say this is chamber jazz, but there’s too much modernity to honestly describe it that way….these are pieces that can only be conceived by someone with a intimate understanding of many music forms; Boshnack’s exposure ranges from Bach to Balkan…..Boshnack’s randy side comes out fully on the title track. This schizo song gets off with a stuttering beat and a rock demeanor, Clement’s Wurlitzer resembling an electric guitar, but also punctuated by quiet solo piano moments. The song picks up steam again, culminating in some female Cookie Monster growling from Fleenor followed by a Mexican trumpet harmony. Yep, it’s a trip.”   (somethingelsereviews.com)

CITY ARTS FEATURES SAMANTHA BOSHNACK: FAR OUT, CLOSE IN

Far Out, Close In

Monday, March 3, 2014 | by Jonathan Zwickel

Sam Boshnack thrives in Seattle’s adventurous jazz scene.

Jazz is by nature a mercurial art form, springboarding across generations of tradition while subsuming the musical vocabulary of the moment. Jazz musicians—the good ones, at least—are equally fluid and curious. In the Age of iTunes, purism has no place on the bandstand.

This multilingualism can be alienating, intimidating, like the tongues of the Pentecostals. But some musicians leverage it into accessibility, weaving multiple entry points from their myriad influences. Seattle, less steeped in structure and history than other cities, is especially open to the sort of miscegenation that leads to new sounds. Which is one reason why trumpet player Samantha Boshnack thrives here.

“Seattle is just not that strict,” Boshnack says. “As a trumpet player, I’m doing my project—jazz and salsa and Balkan music. I’m doing rock and pop. Free jazz. You can kind of dip your horn into anything you want to. I think it’s good for musicians. I learn so much more about different kinds of music and it bleeds into my writing and playing.”
