In my 33 years teaching at the college level, this is one of my favorite books. Bruce Dudley’s accurate transcriptions of Phineas Newborn Jr. solos gives the student a chance to study the music of a piano genius. If you are an aspiring jazz piano student or teacher, you should have these transcriptions!

Phineas Newborn Jr. is credited as a piano virtuoso and until now his original solos were only available through recordings. It has taken 30 years and the recent 7 month dedication by Bruce Dudley to make available the meticulously transcribed, timeless masterpiece solos played/written by Phineas Newborn Jr.
