David Newton...
Pianist David Newton is well known on the club circuit, usually leading the rhythm section accompanying a named horn player but he is an accomplished leader in his own right with a string of superb trio CDs to his name, often with Andrew Cleyndert.
A number of his lesser known earlier albums from the 1990s are now being re-issued as interest in this talented artist grows.
