Fresh Sound Records

Phineas Newborn Jr. (p), John Simmons (b), Roy Haynes (d)

Reference: FSRCD 578

Bar code: 8427328605786

Phineas Newborns warm, sensitive and impressionist playing is at its perceptive best in these outstanding examples of jazz piano. Uncluttered and supported by his remarkable technical ability, his ideas are in full flow, developing in sustained melodic lines, rather than relying on simple rhythmic patterns for their impact. Consistently subtle and full of emotional depth, the combination makes for a swinging collection of gripping performances by a piano virtuoso. Backed by John Simmons and Roy Haynes, he breathes new excitement into these familiar portraits.
