Newsome, Sam – “Straight Horn of Africa, The a Path to Liberation” – [Self Released]

Hemroid The Leader   12/19/2017   CD, Jazz

sam newsome the straight horn of africa

Solo soprano sax originals by Sam Newsome, who was in Terence Blanchard’s band in the 90s. A solo investigation, “The Straight Horn of Africa,” ventures to many places – swinging, otherworldly sounds, African nature sounds, American jazz sounds, Mimmo-isms, Afrobeat and Highlife — it’s all here. Really cool sounds, pure, beautiful, strange.
