Liam Sillery

Primary Instrument: Trumpet

Born: March 28, 1972    

Trumpeter and composer Liam Sillery was introduced to music at an early age by his uncle, also a trumpet player. Liam considers himself fortunate to have been surrounded through the years by fine teachers and musicians. Most significant during his undergraduate studies at the University of South Florida was the great tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson. Before going on to attend the Manhattan School of Music, he performed as a freelance musician. At MSM he studied with Cecil Bridgewater, Dave Liebman, Phil Markowitz, Joan Stiles, Mark Soskin, and Garry Dial.

In 2004 Liam released his first recording as a leader, Minor Changes (OA2 22020). His second cd, On the Fly (OA2 22030), recorded with the David Sills Quartet, was released on October 17, 2006. During the summer of 2007, he recorded his third cd, Outskirts (OA2 22050), with Matt Blostein, Jesse Stacken, Thomas Morgan, and Vinnie Sperrazza.

Trumpeter Liam Sillery continues in the direction of his most recent album ”Outskirts,” challenging both the musicians and the listener with intricate compositions and compelling improvisation. On ”Phenomenology,” the band is reactive and supportive, while maintaining their individual personalities to constantly compliment the music. Liam's exploration of the sonic landscapes suggested by his compositions create a sense of melodic intrigue on the Kenny Wheeler-inspired “Koi” and the horn lines cartwheel through the back- beat of “Intentionality.”

“This recording, Phenomenology, no doubt helps solidify Sillery as “an important voice in 21st Century jazz.” ”Sillery, although influenced a little by Freddie Hubbard, Woody Shaw, and Wynton Marsalis, has his own approach and displays lots of potential.” by Scott Yanow
