Dedicated to expanding the sonic boundaries of solo saxophone performance since 2006, New York-based Sam Newsome creates improvisatory art music expressed through a personalized sound palette of extended techniques where jazz functions as a foundational resource. Newsome’s seventh solo release, “Chaos Theory: Song Cycles for Prepared Saxophone” (2019) features concepts and methodologies which allow him to delve further into the sonic crevices of his instrument.
