About the Album

This CD is a cohesive selection of original pieces showcasing Mr. Newsome's unique style and innovations on the instrument, intertwined with classic works of Thelonious Monk--also paying homage to the late soprano saxophone master Steve Lacy, who helped pioneer the solo saxophone format. Mr. Newsome, who has been honing the solo saxophone format several years, was inspired by the Steve Lacy recording Snips, which was Lacys first U.S. solo soprano saxophone recording. Newsome states, This recording changed the way I heard instrument. I really heard its full potential for telling a story. And the sonic possibilities are off the charts. All of the tracks on this CD were recorded without any overdubs, special effects, or fancy edits; the only accompanying instrument on this date was the studio microphone. Newsome states, My goal was to set a new standard for the soprano saxophone as being able to perform multiple roles, simultaneously--much in the same way that Paganini's Twenty-Four Caprices raised the bar for the unaccompanied violin.
