Jazz pianist David Newton combines exquisite melodies and perfectly judged improvisations in his acclaimed debut album, Victim of Circumstance.

Originally released in 1991, Victim of Circumstance 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.

David Newton's spacious, ultra-relaxed piano is texturally of gossamer lightness, harmonically of direct, selectively voiced, uncluttered chording with carefully rationed dissonance, a filigree right hand of melodic lyricism and a poised sense of rubato.' Jazz Rag

Superb delicacy of touch.' Jazz The Magazine


Upon release the album received many excellent reviews proclaiming it as ‘a beautifully mature and relaxed collection', ‘a brilliantly accomplished recording' and one to be ‘highly recommended'. David's interpretation of ‘The Way You Look Tonight', one of three covers, is a dramatic and lyrical close to the album. An accomplished composer, David Newton has written for Martin Taylor, Alan Barnes, Tina May and Claire Martin; his five originals on Victim of Circumstance showcase his flair for well-constructed melodies. A great rhythm section comprising Alec Dankworth and Clark Tracey (and for ‘Katy's Song', Dave Green and Allan Ganley) provide sterling support.
