Fresh Music chronicles 40 years of Local 9-535 (Boston, MA) member and guitarist Jon Damian’s Creative Workshop Ensemble (CreW), both at the Berklee College of Music and internationally. The book provides refreshing alternatives for improvising and teaching, and immerses and engages the reader in real and practical creative experiences. Written in the form of a play with characters consisting of the workshop members, including Damian, the book invites the reader to join in with CreW activities and ideas inspired by everything in the universe, from alphabets to zodiacs.
