James-Newton-home-photo-box

“As in the seventeenth century, perhaps the composer and the improviser of the twenty-first century will coincide in the same person, now with a more complete awareness of his or her role in a global culture.  If all our diverse history and memory are welcomed to live in such a present, the horizon of peaceful co-existence between people becomes possible.  This generosity of vision on the path to a world music is Newton’s way.”

STEFANO ZENNI
(translated by Pete Kercher, from the liner notes of the CD “As the Sound of Many Waters”, 2000 New World Records)

SACRED WORKS

“James Newton has forged an eclectic career as a jazz flautist, conductor and composer. Here, he demonstrates his skills as a creator of sacred music with hints of jazz and roots in the modernist aesthetics.”
