Experimental Jazz with Sam Newsome

New York-based musician Sam Newsome specializes in pushing the medium of solo saxophone. He was invited to WFMU to perform live on the radio for Kurt Gottschalk's program, Miniature Minotaurs, on July 13th. The recordings are edgy, raw, and innovative. His techniques range from traditional vibrato and percussive methods to unusual additions to his instrument to create extra sounds, textures, and depth to his work. 

"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." 

His first improvisation session is more experimental than the second, with chimes hanging from the instrument, percussive key-tapping, and an exploration of low-range sounds that issued from his instrument. The second improvisation is laced with arpeggios and bears a resemblance to compositions by Philip Glass.

Wanna Be Featured On The Blog?

Just a reminder to you artists out there -- you, too, can be featured on our FMA front page! All you have to do is write a paragraph or two about yourself (or, preferably a release on FMA), add a few tracks, and publish your blog entry. Then send us a note about it - we'll take care of the rest! Entries are added at our discretion, so blogging about a release or launch is not a guarantee, but it does increase your chances considerably (as opposed to not writing at all)!
