Musicians

Sam Newsome

Sam Newsome (Soprano sax) works primarily in the medium of solo saxophone, an approach through which he gained world-wide critical acclaim with the release of his 2009 recording Blue Soliloquy: Solo Works for Soprano Saxophone, which received a five star review in Downbeat magazine. Mr. Newsome sees himself more along the lines of a visual artist who paints with notes and sounds rather than shapes and colors. “My music, “ says Newsome, “is a type of improvisatory art music in which jazz functions more as a resource than a musical genre to be interpreted with stylistic specificity. “ Even though Newsome’s approach is unorthodox, it has proven to be very fruitful—musically and critically.
