Here Is Phineas: The Piano Artistry Of Phineas Newborn Jr (Koch)

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Other than two numbers cut for the Progressive label in Houston a couple years earlier and thus far never reissued, this Atlantic session put out as a Koch CD in 1999 was the recording debut for the remarkable Phineas Newborn. The 24-year-old pianist's playing on this trio/quartet date with bassist Oscar Pettiford and drummer Kenny Clarke and occasionally guitarist Calvin Newborn is virtuosic to say the least, on Oscar Peterson's level if not Art Tatum's.
