Outside In, 2021, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: BigBand
O’s Notes: Tenor saxophonist Sam Pilnick developed his chops in Western Michigan and could his way to Chicago where he teaches on many level and lead a nonet for The Adler Suite, inspired by Chicago’s Adler Planetarium. The nine compositions are far reaching but not at all off-the-planet. “Star Launch” and “Falling Backwards” are swinging examples of a large ensemble presenting an embraceable package. There are soothing tunes like “Constant Companion” and a touch of funk on “House of the Massives” rounding out a fine set.
