“As in the seventeenth century, perhaps the composer and the improviser of the twenty-first century will coincide in the same person, now with a more complete awareness of his or her role in a global culture.  If all our diverse history and memory are welcomed to live in such a present, the horizon of peaceful co-existence between people becomes possible.  This generosity of vision on the path to a world music is Newton’s way.”

“James Newton has forged an eclectic career as a jazz flautist, conductor and composer. Here, he demonstrates his skills as a creator of sacred music with hints of jazz and roots in the modernist aesthetics.”
