DONW BEAT ORIGINAL REVIEW: A WORLD OF PIANO:
“There is every indication in this stunning album that Newborn is well on the way to fulfilling the great promise he showed when he first burst on the jazz scene some seven years ago. All of the eight pieces are fully realized seamless jazz improvitations. This is one of the mostarresting jazz piano achievements in some time “ - Pete Welding
