Guitarist Calvin Newborn will always be best known for being pianist Phineas Newborn's younger brother. A fine blues-oriented player who at various times hints at George Benson, Grant Green and B.B. King, Calvin has been obscure during much of his career but still plays quite well. His sidemen are good local players with organist Charlie Wood sounding the most accomplished and veteran pianist Donald Brown making some welcome appearances. The material on New Born includes blues, some 1970s CTI-type songs and soul-jazz. Although not essential, the results are enjoyable, with the liner notes answering the question "Whatever happened to Calvin Newborn?"
