Description

The Sam Blakeslee Quintet will be performing at Cincinatti's most intimate jazz listening room, Schwartz's Point Jazz & Acoustic Room on Thursday 7/12/2018! Featuring some Cincinatti's local music hero and guitarist Brandon Coleman, 2018 Downbeat Student Music Award Winner Michael Orenstein from Oberlin Conservatory on piano, of New York City's most in demand rhythm section players Leo Sherman on bass and Dan Pugach on drums. Come out to Schwartz's Point on 7/12 for an exciting night of creative music!

Press from the debut album "Selective Coverage" of the Sam Blakeslee Quintet:

"The Sam Blakeslee Quintet has been making headlines for their magnetic approach to contemporary jazz, bridging the gaps between energy and sophistication with their creative arrangements. Their recent studio album, Selective Coverage, is a perfect showcase of their style and personality...What really makes this record a stand out contemporary jazz piece is exactly the highly emotional energy that pervades these tunes.
Chock full of stunning melodies and irresistible harmonies, Selective Coverage will please anyone from discerning jazz aficionados to casual listeners looking for something new."

-JazzCorner

"Sam Blakeslee's trombone playing is so warm on his quintet's debut album, there are times when the instrument could be mistaken for a French horn. Eschewing the brassy tone favoured by many a trombonist, the NYC-based Blakeslee (originally from Columbus, Ohio) opts for a sound as cozy as cashmere. Don't presume, however, that Selective Coverage is an unremittingly mellow collection; instead, it's a satisfyingly varied seven-song set that balances uptempo fare with ballad performances."
