David Newton Quartet
20 October 2017 | 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm| £12.00
David Newton began his musical career in theatre before switching to jazz piano and after making his first recording with Martin Taylor and Buddy De Franco, was persuaded to move to London by his old Leeds College room-mate Alan Barnes. Thanks to an award winning album with Scottish singer Carol Kidd, Newton gained a reputation as an accompanist for singers and as a direct result, has developed his insight and affinity with the Great American Songbook.
Newton has fifteen albums in his name and collaborated on over eighty with other artists. He was made a fellow of The City of Leeds College of Music in 2003 and has won the the British Jazz Award thirteen times.
