Lauren Newton – VOCAL Adventures. Free Improvisation in Sound, Space, Spirit and Song (Wolke, Book)

Lauren Newton is unquestionably one of the most important (jazz) singers and vocal artists of our time and the publication of »VOCAL Adventures. Free Improvisation in Sound, Space, Spirit and Song« is more than overdue and welcome. Published by Wolke, the book serves as both an introduction to her own work and artistic practices and as an overview of the various artistic, social and even spiritual facets of free improvisation. An essential publication, not only for practising singers or fans of Newton's work, but for anyone interested in the possibilities of music in general and the boundary-pushing potential of improvisation in particular.
