Whatever happened to James Newton? He is about the coolest flute player I have ever heard. And I did hear him live once, doing Ellington's music---similar to the great music of The African Flower, though quite a few years later. I know he's long been into sacred music and composing for large ensembles (often no longer playing). But I think back to those glory days of African Flower and Romance and Revolution and his appearance on Jay Hoggard's In the Spirit.
I have some of his earlier stuff on LP, and I'm trying to track down some of the last jazz projects from the 1990s.
He's been way under the radar for too long.
