On April 11, 2017 Sam Boshnack Quintet had the privilege of performing live at KNKX studios for radio broadcast.

“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 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.”
