1. Product Details

Antonio L. Newton AKA Tony Newton born 1948 is a multi-instrumentalist from Detroit MI who began his professional career at the age of thirteen playing bass guitar with blues legends like John Lee Hooker and T-Bone Walker. Discovered by Motown executive Hank Cosby while playing the Detroit blues circuit at the age of 18 he became the touring bassist with Smokey Robinson and the Miracles on the famed 1965 European Motown Review tour. Within two years Newton became the Miracles musical director. Tony Newton also toured and recorded with other Motown artists such as The Supremes Marvin Gaye Stevie Wonder The Jackson 5... and countless others. Earning the nickname the Baby Funk Brother he left his trademark of solid hard-driving and deftly clever grooves on such timeless hits as Where Did Our Love Go Baby Love Stop In The Name Of Love Nowhere to Run ABC Never Can Say Goodbye Dont Leave Me This Way and many others. Next to his impressive body of work for Motown Newton can be heard on several hit singles from labels like Invictus-Hotwax and Stax. Later Newton gained recognition as a member of both the acclaimed jazz-rock fusion group: The New Tony Williams Lifetime headed by Miles Davis drummer Tony Williams and the British hard rock group: G-Force with veteran guitarist Gary Moore. Tony Newton also recorded several solo albums during his impressive career including the two total classics: Mysticism & Romance 1978 and Novaphonia 1987. On the album we are presenting you today Novaphonia from 1987 the listener is treated to something UNIQUE and this is not an overstatement. Newton really puts the multi into multi-instrumentalist playing the synthesizers the electric bass and the drum machine. Experimental is the keyword here sounds vary from psych/trance almost like a soundtrack from a space movie to funk fusion rock R&B soul and jazz. Novaphonia has both elements of Tony Newtons impressive musical past and his vision for the future. Spacious synths unusual instruments and an all-around cosmic approach make this an out of this world and VERY intriguing album. Resonant sonically rich sonorous colorful mind-expanding sounds are what one should expect from the 20th century Novaphonic sound developed to its greatest extent. These harmonies are innately pleasing to the human ear mind and nervous system.
