For the first time ever, in a printed media publication-a comprehensive insight into the processes involved in Sten Hostfalt's microtonal guitar work is featured as a concise sub-chapter in FRESH MUSIC
- EXPLORATIONS WITH THE CREATIVE WORKSHOP ENSEMBLE-FOR MUSICIANS, ARTISTS AND TEACHERS, the new book from one of the world's foremost thinkers about guitar, theory and pedagogy-master educator
and Berklee College of Music professor Jon Damian, documenting four decades with his Creative Workshop
at Berklee. Described according to a 2006 Sten Hostfalt guest lecture and featuring a notated score of Hostfalt's original "Blues For Crew" ( created exclusively for Jon Damian's creative workshop and not available elsewhere). The legacy of Damian's Berklee creative workshop, is invaluable as it during it's 40 year run has nurtured the development of countless guitarists including influential voices like Bill Frisell, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Wayne Krantz, Jeff Parker (Tortoise), Leni Stern, Lionel Loueke, James Valentine (Maroon 5) and Mark Whitfield. It is an honor to be presented by a Jazz education icon, guitar great ( performer with Nancy Wilson, Leonard Bernstein, Luciano Pavarotti, Johnny Cash, The Boston Pops under John Williams and The Boston Symphony Orchestra under Seiji Ozawa ) and key creative force of our time like Jon Damian. Get this book straight from the source, right here at www.jondamian.com also a great place to keep up with Jon Damians concerts and to check out his other books 'The Guitarists Guide to Composing & Improvising and 'The Chord Factory' published by Berklee Press.
