This is the third full-length release by N.E.W., the UK jazz power trio of Alex Ward (electric guitar), John Edwards (bass), and Steve Noble (drums/percussion). NEWtoons is the first release in a new series on Bo' Weavil Recordings -- Sidra Edition. Pressed in a limited edition of 300 hand-numbered copies on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl, and housed inside thick, hand-assembled covers. NEWtoons captures the trio in all their live ferocity, potency and inventive group improvisation. Equal measures free improv as avant-rock, these three live tracks reveal the sheer power, attack and total commitment that these musicians have to reaching new heights. As Jazzwise magazine put it, "Ward is phenomenal, all spidery glissandi and slashing chords. Edwards is a dark magus of a bass player thundering against the elements, while Noble is a violent, malevolent presence. If these guys' personalities reflect their playing, you just wouldn't want to find yourself down a darkened alley with them. A white-knuckled ride you'll be glad to take."
