5.0 out of 5 stars More superb music from a piano genius. 20 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the companion album to "Harlem Blues". Both albums were recorded at the same session 12-13 Feb 1969. By this time he was nearly forty years old and had been recording since his early twenties. He is a pianist with undoubted talent. He has been compared to Tatum, or Powell and by this stage of his career may well be greater than either. His technique is formidable. He had been criticised as being all technique and little emotion; facile even. This had brought on self doubt and an eventual mental breakdown resulting in long internment in mental institutions. This means that Newborn is under-recorded for a man of his undoubted abilities.

On this album we encounter a mature musician who has his own style, albeit influenced by the likes of Bud Powell. He is "supported" by Ray Brown (whom he had recorded with before) and drummer Elvin Jones. These men push Newborn to greater heights. This album is magnificent.

There are 8 varied tracks on this selection including the title track, "Rough Ridin'", "Come Sunday" and "Black Coffee".

These takes were released immediately in 1969, but the other tunes from the same session were held back for ten years before being released as "Harlem Blues".

Fully deserves a 5 star grading.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Awesome Phineas Newborn, Jr. 27 Nov 2009
By Jeffrey L. Huddleston - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Phineas is without a doubt one of the greatest jazz pianist of all times. This is a must have for the true jazz lover! Phineas mixes unbelievable technique with an innate since of melody and affinity for the blues which put him in a league of his own. Oscar Petterson is the closest to the Phineas type of mastery, but It would be had to say which one I like best. Wow, what a talent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Phineas Newborn Born Anew! 3 Oct 2009
By Michael B. Richman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It had been five years since the remarkable "Newborn Touch," when pianist Phineas Newborn Jr. got together with bassist Ray Brown and drummer Elvin Jones at Contemporary Studios in Los Angeles to record the sessions that would become "Harlem Blues" and "Please Send Me Someone To Love" in mid February 1969. Listening to this CD, the first thing you notice is that time has seemingly stood still -- this trio date could be from 1959 as easily as '69. While jazz had changed dramatically since 1964, Newborn had not and his profund playing is still filled with furious flurries of ebony and ivory. Elvin Jones' contribution is essential, as he is one of the few drummers who can keep up with Newborn's bounty of notes, yet compliment the pianist with multi-layered embellishments of his own. Ray Brown is the navigator that holds these two musical adventurers on course. Usually I don't buy many jazz albums made after 1965, but I'm delighted I took a chance on this one, and I can't wait to get its companion "Harlem Blues."
