Introduction Welcome to my blogsite and musical home! My name is Sam Newsome and I am a New York-based soprano saxophonist. As far as what I do: I divide my time between being the coordinator of the music program at LIU Brooklyn, an experimenter of new sounds on the soprano saxophone, and a performer and educator of jazz around the world. My area of focus over the past 10 years or so has been solo saxophone—an artistic pursuit that has brought me many rewards and riches, and has led to numerous fruitful collaborations. My blogsite (both blog and website) is unique in that it (1) contains articles about various topics related to jazz and the soprano saxophone, and (2) functions as my main website, providing information about upcoming performances, CD releases, reviews, and accolades. And by clicking the PRESS KIT link below, you can have access to press photos and a detailed bio. In this day and age, I figured there’s no need having both a blog and a website. I found it increasingly difficult trying to maintain both. It made sense to just combine them. So welcome to Soprano Sax Talk, and I look forward to sharing ideas and music with you over the next several years. Sincerely, Sam Newsome
