Farnell Newton, a new label of his own and keeping very busy in the time of covid / Coffeeshop Conversations @ Artichoke Music #253

By TOM D'ANTONI // The unstoppable trumpeter, composer, producer, label owner with a new album on his own label lofijazzsoul.

.One of the busiest, most productive and most versatile musicians around here is Farnell Newton.

It’s been way too long since Farnell has visited the podcast…five years, even. Are we that old? I guess we are.

He’s back as trumpeter, composer, producer and label owner. He had multiple working ensemble before the tribulations hit.

Those tribulations have not stopped him from composing, playing and starting a new label…lofisouljazz….all one word. There’s a new compilation album just out featuring Farnell and lots of collaborators.

Listen to a track at the end of our conversation.a

Let’s catch up with Farnell.
