A master of jazz piano and acknowledged heavyweight of British jazz, David Newton's sophisticated playing is to the fore in his second studio album.

Originally released in 1991, Eye Witness has been re-issued as part of Linn's ECHO series which offers a second chance to enjoy the best of the label's award-winning catalogue.

‘Newton's very soft approach would hush the nosiest audience. Among Newton's works, the strutting opener "Ol' Blue Eyes" and the turbocharged title track stand out.’ All Music Guide

‘The pianist's second Linn release is even better than his debut, which is saying something.’ The List

Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, Eye Witness sees the award-winning pianist strike the perfect balance between well played standards and upbeat catchy originals. The instinctive interplay between the trio of Newton, Green and Ganley shows emphatic musical understanding. An accomplished composer, David Newton has written for Martin Taylor, Alan Barnes, Tina May and Claire Martin; his three original compositions sit well alongside standards such as Hancock's ‘Eye of the Hurricane’ and Mal Waldron's ‘Soul Eyes’. Recorded shortly after his acclaimed debut, Eye Witness demonstrates Newton’s depth of compositional ideas adding to the great modern jazz keyboard tradition of Keith Jarrett and Bill Evans.
