Combining personal storytelling and social commentary, NYC-based, Ohio-native jazz trombonist and composer Sam Blakeslee releases the Sam Blakeslee Quintet debut, Selective Coverage. Selective Coverage features many of Blakeslee collaborators over the years – Brandon Coleman on guitar, Jorn Swart on piano, Cory Todd on bass, and Dan Pugach on drums.

CoolCleveland’s Stephan Haluska got a chance to meet up with Blakeslee at the BOP STOP, while he was en route from NYC to Columbus to find out more about Selective Coverage and his upcoming tour. Sam Blakeslee Quintet performs two nights in Northeast Ohio, at BOP STOP on Fri 2/16 and BluJazz+ on Sat 2/17.
