THURSDAY, JUNE 1 – 7:30PM
5000 Rainier Ave S
A celebration of two exciting new releases – duende libre’s self-titled debut album and Sam Boshnack Quintet’s “Nelly Bly Project.” At this bold and engaging performance, expect to hear innovative compositions rooted in the jazz tradition with an ear to everything from contemporary chamber music to salsa to American rock, delivered with heartfelt conviction. Although each band possesses its own unique aesthetic, they find common ground in their shared passion for creating original music that melds eclectic sounds and styles with fiery improvisation.
The Sam Boshnack Quintet kicks off the night at 7:30 with music from this new record written in honor of Nellie Bly – the dare-devil, feminist journalist from the 19th century who remains an inspiration!

Sam Boshnack // trumpet & vocals & compositions
Beth Fleenor // clarinets & vocals
Alex Chadsey // piano & keyboards
Issac Castillo // bass
