Editorial Reviews

THUNDERFUNKFUSION! Can you say “funk and Fusion” in the same sentence. Apparently so! Legendary multi-talented musician-composer Tony Newton describes this music presentation as: Motown meets Hendrix meets Miles. The Motown Funk and Jazz-Rock-Fusion master can speak from experience. Playing in the Motown family and the “Funk Brothers”, as well as being a founding architect of the Jazz-Rock-Fusion genre from his two year, two LP recording and touring stint with Miles Davis Drummer Tony Williams and the Lifetime. Newton skyrocketed the association to the cutting edge of the high-energy and passionate style writing the now classic compositions, “Snake Oil and Red Alert” on the CBS critically acclaimed “Believe It” offering and lead vocalizing the funky, “You Did It To Me Baby” on “Million Dollar Legs” the second project from these exceptional music artists. As a testament to the quality of these compositions, these recordings have become classics and are still selling strong today even after more than 25 years. Newton a masterful Bassist-Keyboardist-Vocalist shows that he is fully in touch with his powers of musical expression, creating an astounding blend of delicate balances of deep, soulful Funk in combination with the high-energy power, and intensity of jazz-rock-fusion. Newton takes the genre to a new level of artistic creativity in contemporary music’s evolution forward. Folks, this is a true representation of genuine exceptional music expression. Tony returns to his funk roots, however in quantum leaps, he forges ahead in fusion and composition with “Thunderfunkfusion”. Here he presents an eclectic and dynamic collection of Funk and Fusion based songs and instrumentals for your listening experience featuring the inimitable Newton sound, alive and well. Actually, you can hear influences of the Motown groove; the Jimmy Hendrix blues based rock, and the innovative Miles Davis, Tony Williams, jazz-rock-fusion components quite clearly. The musical result makes this album a very expressive, energetic and exceptional performance recording. Tony, the “Groovemonster” himself, lays down soul stirring bass lines, heartfelt solos and melodies, and funky keyboard parts while belting out his own brand of “profound” and “fun” interpretive lyrics and vocal expression. The classics, “Snake Oil and Red Alert” are revisited with extended arrangements along with the extraordinary, “Mars Eclipse” a symphony from classical composer Gustav Host’s “The Planets”, transcribed and arranged by Newton. Experience the multi-dimensional “Sun Love” Ballad’s beauty. Then take your joy higher. You will find your body moving and head nodding on the infectious, soulful funky dance songs, “Freedom to Funk,” “Everybody Get Funky,” and the other funk and rock “Feel Good” songs. “Antonio (Tony) Newton, super genius, will go down in history as one of the most vital path-forgers of our era” …Music critic Randali of Mean Street Magazine.
