Album Notes
Land Grab is Bassist/composer, Sam Trapchak's second album as a leader. Made up of a classic jazz quartet instrumentation (sax, guitar, bass, drums), this album is anything but. Rooted in jazz and blues but borrowing widely from a great many of Trapchak's musical experiences and influences, Land Grab is a tour de force of contemporary music. Band members, Greg Ward (Alto Saxophone), Tom Chang (guitar), and Christian Coleman (drums) help Trapchak deliver this potent mix of through composed chamber music, free improvisation, heavy metal breakdowns, and lop-sided blues shuffles. Please enjoy Land Grab, and if you like it be sure to check out Trapchak's debut album, Lollipopoacalypse, also available on CDbaby and iTunes.

Praise for Trapchak's first record “Lollipopocalypse”

“...equally accessible and stimulating. Replete with infectious melodies, risk taking compositions, and cohesive variety.” All About Jazz

“...Derivative of most everything and a duplication of nothing.”- Something Else

“An auspicious set by a cat who has arrived, this is well worth checking out..” -Midwest records

“A very impressive first outing” -Bass World Magazine
