New York City based trombonist Sam Blakeslee comes home to celebrate the release of his new album The Long Middle with his quartet ‘wistful thinking’. The album is something closer to chamber jazz than the big band sound Sam is known for throughout northeast Ohio. But for this performance – Sam decided to move away from the chamber jazz sound with the addition of drums to give the music a different sound and feel.

Featuring Chris Coles on saxophone, Brandon Coleman on guitar, Sam on trombone, Matt Wiles on bass and Zaire Darden on drums on this February 6th, 2022 performance here’s Sam Blakeslee and Wistful Thinking – Live at the Bop Stop.

This program is recorded at the Robert Conrad Studios at the Bop Stop in Cleveland, Ohio with additional production by Graham Rosen and editing for WOBC and WNPA provided by Dr. Pete Naegele and for our podcast and other affiliates by Shawn Gilbert and Carsen Gilbert at GilAzar media. 

The Executive Producer is Daniel Peck.
