Entertainment Reviews:

Q - 6/97, p.152
4 Stars (out of 5) - "...Newborn was the possessor of a fearsome technique....witness his version of Sonny Rollins's 'Oleo' which is rapid enough to bring on a seizure in the listener foolish enough to try and toe-tap.

Phineas Newborn's Contemporary debut (he would record six albums over a 15-year period for the label) was made just before physical problems began to interrupt his career. This CD reissue has two trio sessions, and finds Newborn joined by either bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Philly Joe Jones or bassist Sam Jones and drummer Louis Hayes. Actually, the accompaniment is not that significant, for the virtuosic Newborn is essentially the whole show anyway. He performs five jazz standards and three obscurities by jazz composers on this superb recital; highlights include "Cheryl," "Manteca," "Daahoud," and "Oleo." ~ Scott Yanow
