Frankie Newton


Trumpeter Frankie Newton, whose mellow and thoughtful design sometimes seemed somewhat out of place in the golf swing era, had a comparatively short but artistically rewarding profession. He previously stints with Lloyd Scott (1927-1929), Cecil Scott (1929-1930), Chick Webb, Elmer Snowden, Charlie Johnson, and Sam Wooding, and made an appearance on Bessie Smith’s last recording program in 1933. Newton caused Charlie Barnet’s short-lived built-in music group in 1936 along with Teddy Hill, before briefly getting closely connected with bassist John Kirby and his affiliates. The eventual John Kirby Sextet could have been the reasonable place for the trumpeter, but a falling out in clumps in 1937 were left with younger Charlie Shavers obtaining the spot within the commercially effective group. Newton rather performed for Mezz Mezzrow and Lucky Millinder, led several record times (including taking part in a collection for Hugues Panassie), and worked well at Cafe Culture, accompanying Billie Vacation on many of her information (especially “Strange Fruits”). Because the 1940s advanced, Newton became much less thinking about music and steadily faded in the scene, painting a lot more than playing, dying a ignored and under-utilized skill.
