Phineas Newborn Jr.(2)

October 19, 2016

Phineas Newborn, Jr. recorded steadily as a leader and sideman throughout the 1950s and into the 1960s.

In 1952 in Memphis, Count Basie heard Newborn’s playing.

Basie brought him to the legendary producer John Hammond.

Then he moved to the East Coast by Hammond’s encouragement.

From 1956 he began to perform in New York City, making his first album as a leader in that year.

“Here Is Phineas” was the debut album which recorded in 1956 and released on the Atlantic label.

He was transferred to RCA Victor label from his second work.

Unfortunately RCA Victor recordings were a complete failure.

So he went to work as a solo pianist in Stockholm and Rome.
