Natural Philosopher

from by Greg Runions Group



The Natural Philosopher started it's musical life like many other jazz tunes - called NEW TUNE. This transformed to "Newton" and when it came time to really name the piece I looked up Newton and found out he was known as a "Natural Philosopher". The phrase stuck and this has been it's title since.

Musically this tune is another ballad - this time inspired by the feel of other ballads by Wayne Shorter and Kenny Wheeler.
