Biography
At this JVC New York Jazz Festival, the Contemporary Piano Ensemble performed a Tribute to one of the most technically skilled and brilliant pianists in jazz during his prime, Phineas Newborn, Jr. Mr. Newborn, 1931-1989, never really gained the acceptance and praise due him because of his many absences from the Jazz scene, yet he was readily considered to be in the same league with Art Tatum and Bud Powell, always playing with great inspiration and animation. Spending most of his time in Memphis, he was an inspiration to many younger pianists including James Williams, Harold Mabern, Mulgrew Miller, Donald Brown and Geoff Keezer, who after Newborn's death would dedicate their work as the Contemporary Piano Ensemble to Phineas.
