When considering titles for his debut album, "Light Shines In", on Fresh Sound New Talent Records, tenor saxophonist and clarinetist Adam Schneit was reminded of the chorus from his favorite Leonard Cohen song, "Anthem": "Ring the bells that still can ring / Forget your perfect offering / There is a crack in everything / That's how the light gets in." Light Shines In while an assured introduction to a musician with a unique instrumental and compositional voice, is also a reflection of the joy that comes with risking imperfection, with seeking vulnerability and honesty in each moment of creation. For Schneit, "The most honest form for me might be a melodically ‘simple' rock song, or a vehicle for free improvisation. But I think, or hope, there's a unity to it all."
