Phineas Newborn, Jr.

Phineas Newborn, Jr. (December 14, 1931 in Whiteville, Tennessee – May 26, 1989 in Memphis, Tennessee) was an American jazz pianist, whose principal influences were Art Tatum, Oscar Peterson and Bud Powell. Newborn came from a musical family with his father, Phineas Newborn, Sr., being a blues musician and his younger brother, Calvin, a jazz guitarist. Phineas studied piano as well as trumpet, and tenor and baritone saxophone. He worked with Charles Mingus, among others, early on in an R&B direction. His later career was very intermittent due to physical and mental health problems.
