For his third OA2 release, New York trumpeter Liam Sillery broadens his recorded musical palette as he explores the "outskirts" of mainstream jazz. While retaining his strong melodic & harmonic sense, Sillery's expanded phrasing and the band's collective improvisations unfold into an organic sea of deeply musical exploration. Alto saxophonist Matt Blostein blends nicely with Sillery on Black Bag, as each horn player challenges the other's creative wit throughout. Most definitely a departure from his previous recordings, "Outskirts" offers a further look into Sillery's artistic prowess.
•"Sillery's sweet tone can cause mallards to swoop from the rafters..." - Dan Karcher, WBGO.
