Phineas Newborn earned praise and encouragement in the mid-1950s from Count Basie, John Hammond, and Ralph J. Gleason; his articulation, virtuosity, and creativity were in a class comparable only with Art Tatum or Oscar Peterson. The full scope of his gifts is apparent here, with two different rhythm sections drawn respectively from the combos of Miles Davis and Cannonball Adderley. His selection of material includes works by Gillespie, Parker, Rollins, Clifford Brown, and, most notably, Billy Strayhorn, whose "Lush Life" he interprets with a rare and poignant beauty.
with Paul Chambers, Philly Joe Jones, Sam Jones, Louis Hayes
