The formation of Airborne was in the early 1980s by Thomas Sansone, Thomas Borino, and Greg Borino. The signature jazz sound of Airborne was nurtured in the communities of art and music that flourished in the streets of the multicultural city of New Haven, Conn., where the band was born and raised. In 1988, they embarked on their amazing jazz recording career that has included a total of 15 CDs. Mixx Magazine once declared, “Listening to them is a whirling musical journey packed with emotion and flawless execution …”
25 years later, Silver Skies includes unique compositions that take you on a musical journey filled with various jazz styles, along with influences the band has experienced and treasured. The vibrant arrangements fire the hot music, while the techniques of the musicians awake an addictive “feel-good” theme with hot rhythms smoothly cruising on a cool sea of music and voices. This Airborne trademark sound of island passion and urban emotion celebrates joyful jazz with a message. Airborne is the musical peacemakers of contemporary jazz.
