Puget Sound Region NPR Affiliate features Boshnack (Live in Studio)

Editor’s note: This content is courtesy of KNKX. Listen to the original streaming program HERE.

Growing up in upstate New York, you might expect a young jazz talent to head for the Big Apple, the legendary “jazz center of the world,” but trumpeter Samantha Boshnack came to Seattle. She’ll tell you it was a great decision.

Sam is a dedicated composer as well as a player, and she told us about working with her large ensemble, the B’shnorchestra, that working with those she admires as players and people is what she loves about jazz.

Live in the KNKX studios, it was obvious that her band loves playing her music with her.

Complex, multi-faceted movements are her specialty, and after three extended tunes, our studio audience felt like we’d been on an epic journey. One word that kept coming up was “cinematic,” and one piece – “Seventy-Two Days” from her soon-to-be-released Nellie Bly Project album – sounded like a short film about the dynamic journalist, inventor and daredevil feminist from a century ago.

Alongside Beth Fleenor on clarinet, bass clarinet and vocals, this session was another reminder of the wealth of female jazz talent in the Northwest. These are world-class musicians who are sure to produce and inspire generations of talented young jazz women, in the Seattle area and beyond.
