“Here Is Phineas” is an album by jazz pianist Phineas Newborn, Jr. recorded in 1956. One of the most technically skilled and brilliant pianists in jazz during his prime, Phineas Newborn remains a bit of a mystery. Plagued by mental and physical problems of unknown origin, Newborn faded from the scene in the mid-’60s, only to re-emerge at irregular intervals throughout his life.
This is a rare original copy, bought in a record bin in Puerto Rico in 1967. The colors on the jacket cover photograph have shifted to the red, but the quality of both the cover and record is Very Good.
