3.0 étoiles sur 5 Sub-Par Phineas 30 avril 2011
Par Tad Ulrich - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
When I heard this album several years ago, the first thing that crossed my mind was, "What in hell has happened to Phineas?!" (even before I was aware of his psychological problems). Gone was the warmth, smoothness, creativity and confidence that won me over on such great records as "piano Portraits", "I love a Piano" and "A World of Piano." Instead what I'm hearing on this recording is a percussive assault on the piano that speaks to me of the mental illness that was beginning to consume him. It's a window to a tortured soul. And the piano does him no favors either and belongs in a saloon segment of an old "Gunsmoke" episode.

For example, listen to his performance of Quincy Jones' "The Midnight Sun Never Sets" here and compare it to his sublime version on "I love a Piano." There is no comparison!

Newborn's technique is still impressive but that really doesn't add anything of value to this record. If you are a first time Phineas Newborn listener, this album should not be your first choice. Instead, give a listen to the ones I've mentioned above.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 At Last! Newborn's Landmark Solo Recording 18 avril 2000
Par Robert Burko - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
That this recording ever came to be is nothing short of miraculous. After years of sporadic gigs and recording sessions punctuated by stays in various mental institutions, Phineas Newborn, Jr. returned to his native Memphis to be cared for by his mother. Still, Junior would stand on the street corner, talking to himself, laughing at his own private jokes, scaring the neighbors. Forgotten by most of the music world, there were still those who recognized his genius and did what they could to get him back in the recording studio. The late musician Fred Ford was one of those people and he managed to set up and produce sessions for Phineas at Ardent Studios. Given this now rare opportunity, Junior gave it his all, the music flowing from his fingers.
The story of these sessions - indeed the story of Phineas Newborn, Jr. - is wonderfully related in author Stanley Booth's biographical essay, "Fascinating Changes". The essay is contained in his book "Rythm Oil" which, I understand, will be back in print in the near future. It is must reading for anyone who wants to understand Newborn's genius. Among other vignettes, Booth relates how, during the period these sessions were recorded, Junior walked into the recording studio and approached the piano. The recording engineer, not knowing who he was, nevertheless started the tape rolling. Phineas started playing "Memphis Blues," one of the tracks on this CD, while standing at the keyboard. He then put his foot on the pedal and sat down - in that order.
Tragedy and heartache followed Newborn like a shadow throughout much of his career. Either before or during the sessions that make up this CD, Junior went out one night and came back beaten to a bloody pulp. He ended up in the hospital with his left hand fractured, some of his teeth missing, his nose broken, barely alive. Booth relates how on the day of Newborn's release from the hospital, Junior went to the recording studio and recorded Harold Arlen's "Out Of This World" (also on this CD), his barely healed left hand playing a frenzied ostinato figure. Calvin Newborn, Junior's brother, rightly describes this as a testament of his brother's determination to succeed against all odds, the power of the music overcoming both mental illness and the physical assault.
After its initial release, "Solo Piano" earned a Grammy nomination and some praise, then sank into oblivion. Now, twenty five years later, 32 Jazz has re-released the recording on CD. They are to be commended for fulfilling the dreams of many Newborn fans who have been waiting far too long for the CD release as well as for allowing a new generation to discover the genius of Newborn.
Why a rating of four stars instead of five? As great as Newborn's only solo album is, some of his earlier solo tracks surpass it. A few of the tracks sound rushed and just a bit rusty. Also, the piano sound isn't the greatest, sounding somewhat harsh, strident, closely miked and in your face . This is baffling, considering the other solo recording by Junior from the same period and recorded in the same studio have a much better piano sound. The CD is mostly in stereo but a couple of tracks switch to mono. Four and a half stars would seem to be a more appropriate rating compared to the rest of Newborn's recorded legacy.
Keep in mind that no diamond is without flaws and "Solo Piano" is certainly a diamond. Given the adversity surrounding this recording, "Solo Piano" still belongs in every jazz piano lovers collection. The range of music is wonderful, from a great version of "Willow Weep For Me" that compares favorably with Art Tatum's recording of the song to Newborn's own arrangement of "Where Is The Love", a song made popular by Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway in the `70s. "Lorraine's Walk", penned by bassist Oscar Pettiford, allows Newborn to show off his awesome parallel runs. "The Midnight Sun Will Never Set" shows off the poetic side of Newborn's playing to great advantage as does the measured, harmonic performance of Coltrane's "Giant Steps". "Out Of This World" is - - well - - out of this world, full of humor and Afro-Cuban rhythms.
As I have already mentioned, Newborn fans have waited far too long for a "Solo Piano" CD release. Listening to it is like having Newborn walk into your living room and giving you an improvised performance on the family piano, gracing you with his musical genius. Buy the CD and relish this rare opportunity to listen to Newborn, one of the world's most underrated musicians, in what is arguably his most intimate setting.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Pure Phineas in all his genius 20 juillet 2006
Par Jazzcat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Phineas is just one of the musicians I love the most, and comparing him to the greatest piano geniuses who ever lived I think it could be one of the greatest compliment I could make him.. how could I give less than five stars to his piano solo album? Phineas was a pianist of fatastic talent and sensibility. He was absolutly faaaaantastic. He was similar to Tatum .. he played a lot of notes but they were all beautiful! This album of standards and piano solo excursions is something you have to own if you love Jazz. He is not similar to Bill Evans he is not bigger neither smaller than him. Simply different. But what a musician!!!!! I have for him the best possibile consideration! I own all of his albums ... Phineas ... man..... can't say good enough of him. I know in his later years he met in Memphis another one of my musical heroes, Shawn Lane. Since the day I knew this, one of my wyldest dreams is me, Phineas and Shawn in a room, talking about jazz, music and playing..... Just a note. I have the Collectables edition, not this 32 Jazz edition. Which is better I think, the cover is full page and it is a legendary cover.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Piano Genius 28 mars 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This is a fine album by grossly under-appreciated piano whiz Phineas Newborn Jr. (pronounced "Fine-us"). the technical brilliance is dazzling, the content is staggering, the sheer beauty unmistakable. A great example of just how creative and brilliant Phineas was even after that turbulent decade of the sixties. Nica's Dream is beautifully rendered, and the two versions of "Where is the love" are the shocker tracks.... really really wonderful. I just wish he had played more on "Giant Steps" and at a faster tempo. This album though is great from start to finish.
