music is life, music is breath, music is us

James Newton- Sophisticated Lady (from “The African Flower”)

James Newton is a jazz legend, and musical chameleon. He is able to move in and out of different styles with ease as both a performer and composer. He has won 23 consecutive years in Downbeat Magazine’s International Critics Poll for flute. He is also my composition adviser. He is a compassionate man, who understands you as an individual and as an artist. I’m a grateful guy for his ability to tap into resources musically I didn’t see as an auto-didactic composer.

  1. I don’t like jazz but upon listening to this one I find it connects to the flower..Unusual music totally different from what I’d imagine…Yes I am drawn in here to this one and the artist too…Love the big flower in the photo..One could imagine the flower speaking as the music progresses…Thanks for sharing this…Good for film too.
