Farnell Newton: Coffeeshop Conversations #41 - Bootsy Collins, Jill Scott and perpetual motion


Welcome back to World Cup Coffee and Tea at Northwest 18th and Glisan in Portland, Oregon. This time, not long back from two lengthy tours, one with Jill Scott and one with Bootsy Collins, with a new album out, one ready to go and one in production, one of the busiest musicians in Oregon, trumpeter/composer Farnell Newton. Or "Neutron Newton" as we will find out. He's one of those musicians who is comfortable in any genre but who is focusing on Soul and Funk and Jazz and various versions and combinations of them. His new album is called Ready to Roll and we'll hear some of it. Next time, long-time Portland favorite, one of the last of the great boogie-woogie pianists and now an institution in Canada….David Vest.
