Phineas Newborn Jr. – Lush Life

Phineas Newborn Jr is a gem of a piano player and if you don't already know his work you've been missing out. This video features him performing the eternal Billy Strayhorn classic Lush Life and is more than worth a few moments of your time. It is my hope that if you haven't been listening to his records that you click on this link and go make an invaluable addition to your collection. 

If one taste isn't enough before you take the plunge into purchasing his work, you can find more audio of him here alongside a piece I wrote a little while back for the Paper Crane Collective entitled Top Five Jazz Records for People Who Don't Like Jazz. You dig?
