Jazz piano as it should be played ! PERIOD ! 2 Aug. 2004
By Jazzcat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Boppin' and burnin' !! Tons of fun and deepness in Phineas's music !! Probably one of the five most talented piano player in the whole history of jazz, Phineas was simply a marvel with the ivories. I can't understand people's complaining about excess of technique in Phineas music. What's the point? For this people a pianist or a jazz musician should play only at medium or slow tempos or only play simple to be taken seriously. What's the point? I think it is a lack of understanding of the real beauty of music. For me it is never a matter of speed or of simple things against complex things .. it is always a matter of beauty! And Phineas knew the meaning of the word for sure. Moreover bebop language is a complex idiom, think of Charlie Parker, Dizzie Gillespie .. did they play slow? Did they play simple ? Of course not !! Were them little musicians? Obviously not, they were simply the greatest Jazz players of all time .. so what? What's wrong with Phineas need for speed? He always delivers a great music experience. He touch me in the deepest just when he play at the highest speed. Playing fast and RIGHT saying things is a something few players can do. But Phineas can play spectacular and emotionally deep slow solos too. Listen how he played on "Prelude to a kiss" for example .. of course there are some doublings here and there but Bird would do them too ... man Phineas plays magnificiently with octaves, block chords, I mean, he was incredible.

This album is a wonderful bebop album. I treasure every album Phineas did. He was a master and he will always be one of my all time favourite musician. And I am a Jazz guitarist not a pianist. Enough said.

Phineas cuts Oscar, Tatum, and even Bud Powell. 18 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
He is a monster. At first, I was just thrilled by Oscar Peterson's playing (and I still am) but then I heard Phineas Newborn Jr. You can even hear in his playing some things that Oscar has borrowed from him. Listen to Phineas for some of the greatest work in parallel lines. From start to finish, you will need to wear a seat belt for this cd. He is great!!!!!

One of the essential albums for fans 29 April 2014
By Mike Tarrani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
By the time Newborn recorded this album he was a veteran leader as well as incredible sideman. If you are a fan I will only bore you with my gushing. If you are new to Newborn and his music you are in for a treat.

Sadly there are no sound samples on this page at the time of this review, but there are three from this album on a compilation titled The Very Best Oo Phineas Newborn Jr. (tracks 2, 6 and 26 on that page correspond to Theme for Basie, New Blues and Four.)

The music on this album is incredible. Newborn is backed by two rhythm sections. On the November 21, 1961 that produced the first five tracks on this album he is ably backed by Sam Jones on bass and Louis Hayes on bass. As an aside, this session also resulted in tracks for another album titled World of Piano.

Tracks 6 through 9 were recorded on September 12, 1962 with Newborn backed by Leroy Vinnegar on bass and Milt Turner on drums.

This album was recorded for Contemporary Records in their Los Angeles studios and offers some of Newborn's best work from this period. Some folks accused him of being too technical, but to my ears he played from his heart with gifts that few have. Both of this trios are perfectly matched to his playing, which makes this album all the more enjoyable.

This CD reissue is the great Phineas Newborn Jr at his best 27 Jan. 1999
By twinky@start.com.au - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This 1961/62 date is extraordinary form start to finish. Phineas experiments with several tempos and styles throughout this recording and each one shines in its own respect. Highlights include "This Here" and a version of Monk's "Well, You Needn't". The only faultering moments appear in "Celia" and Ellington's "Prelude to a Kiss" but these faults are very minor. If you like jazz piano then this album is quite simply a must buy.

Nice Work of Jazz From a Tight Trio 26 July 2006
By Jerome P. Hartweg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There are only two reasons I purchased this album, and that was because of two of the tracks. Track 6 is called "Theme for Basie" and is a delight to hear. With Sam Jones on bass and Leroy Haynes on drums, the ensemble playing sparkles with a clean tight sound. You can almost sense Count Basie smiling at what the trio does with this tune.

Track 4 is Duke Ellington's "Prelude to a Kiss," and I really wanted to buy this CD only to hear this track over and over again. Leroy Vinegar (bass) and Milt Turner (drums) help make this a very pleasant tribute to Ellington. Every time I listen to "Prelude to a Kiss" I wonder with amazement how Duke Ellington came up with this very beautiful composition.

Don't be deceived by my 3-star rating. The only reason I gave the album 3 stars was because I wasn't very impressed or interesting in the other seven tracks. I found myself jumping to the next track to see if that one would capture my attention. It didn't. Were I to rate the album based soley on tracks #4 and #6 (especially #4), I would give it 5 stars.
