David Newton - Eye Witness - The List
01 May 1991The List
The pianist's second Linn release is even better than his debut, which is saying something. The emphatic musical understanding which has grown up between Newton and his partners in Carol Kidd's trio, Dave Green and Alan Ganley, bears rich fruit here, ranging from standards to Hancock's Eye of the Hurricane
and Newton's title track, all on an 'eye' theme. Freed of the restrictions of an accompanying role, the trio stretch out in a superbly musical session which owes nothing to passing fashion. Newton also features on Carol Kidd's I'm Glad We Met
and Martin Taylor's Change of Heart
, which completes this triumvirate of new releases from the Eaglesham label.
