Blue-in-Green:PODCAST #78: "Sam Newbould"


Welcome to Episode #78 of the Blue-in-Green:PODCAST which sees Imran connect with saxophonist, writer and composer, Sam Newbould.

With his sophomore album release due out in March 2021 through the independent Netherlands-based label, ZenneZ Records, Sam Newbould and his Amsterdam-based Quintet follow-up '2019's 'Blencathra' in spectacular fashion.  

'Bogus Notus' seeks its inspiration from Newbould's years growing up in the Yorkshire Dales. It's an album that strives to capture the stark contrast of these beautiful surroundings while also addressing the somewhat harsh restrictions that come along with them.  With his roots now firmly in place within Amsterdam, Newbould has solidified his position amongst a thriving musical soundscape with no shortage of world-class talent in which to surround himself with.

This episode sees Sam delve in to the excellent 'Bogus Notus', discuss Amsterdam's incredible and diverse jazz scene, how quarantine life has been over the last year and also delve into the importance, as an independent artist, of using the internet and social media to your advantage.

The Blue-in-Green:PODCAST unveils new episodes on the first, second and third Mondays of the month. This podcast series runs in conjunction with the online radio station, Blue-in-Green:RADIO which celebrates 21st century soul, jazz, funk, Latin & hip-hop music.
