David Newton - Return Journey - The Telegraph and Argus
Pianist Newton's latest on Linn confirms him as a composer and musician of the highest calibre. An album of solo piano, it oozes emotion, power and beauty, exploring the idea of time. There is great variety too, from a man whose own career has been so varied - playing in backing groups with stars like Art Farmer, Bud Shank and Nat Adderley and working closely with vocalist Carol Kidd. Two songs stand out here, Stolen Time and Gone Forever, both thoughtful and subtle and played to perfection.
