Sam Newsome made a decision nearly 15 years ago to switch exclusively to the soprano saxophone. His most recent album, Blue Soliloquy (self-produced, 2009) is a solo exploration of that instrument. In this interview, Newsome talks about his pattern of intensive periods of study; the musical goals he had for the new record; and also about other projects with which he’s involved, including a dance performance and a collaboration with a Romanian pianist.
