JAMES NEWTON & DAVID MURRAY "SOLOMON'S SON" (CIRCLE, 1977)







Inamorata has provided us with another treasure - but let's 'hear' it in his own words:


James Newton & David Murray: Solomon's Sons (Circle Records, 1977)

Here we go with the second installment of The Complete James Newton on Circle Records. A discography of Newton's Circle recordings will follow in the last installment.

Circle Records RK 16177/5


One further flute solo track from the same concert, Bobby Bradford's "Woman", is included on "Flutes!" (Circle Records RK 7677/7). This show is remarkable as one of the rare (if not the only) officially documented occasions of David Murray playing the alto sax.
This LP was posted before by Wallofsound on Inconstant Sol (http://inconstantsol.blogspot.com/2007/12/james-newton-and-david-murray-solomons.html), with a very interesting description (also see his remarkable posts on DM at http://wallofsound.wordpress.com/category/david-murray/). The flac links are dead; the mp3 links are still active but the files suffer from considerable digital clipping so this is clearly an upgrade.
As with the Flutes! LP, the transfer was de-rumbled and de-clicked but otherwise unchanged. For audio restoration I use the software written by Brian Davies at www.clickrepair.net which I cannot praise highly enough. However, just as any sharp tool, this has to be used with great care in order to avoid damage.

Let me add a word concerning the oron links.
As there's a limit for free account users I will delete all older or not (rarely) used oron links, as soon as I come close to the limit.
Therefore only the rapidshare links will remain...

Quantas veces hace años no pudimos comprar esos discos por falta de dinero! Y unos años después, con unas monedas mas el el bolsillo, ya habian desaparecidos de los nogocios. Por eso estoy muy y muy agradecido que hoy nos permitas de difrutar de eso.
Muchas gracias!

Thank you very much for this share and all other shares, and you effort in providing download options.

Since you are mentioning free accounts, have you tried mediafire.com? I warmly recommend it - no waiting time, no speed limit, multiple downloads...

We're a bit hesitant about Mediafire as there are reports coming from other blogs about Mediafire unilaterally and without warning deleting large swathes of files on what we would think are the flimsiest of pretexts. So we stay away from that one.
