A World of Piano! is an album by American jazz pianist Phineas Newborn Jr. recorded in 1961 and released on the Contemporary label.



The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states "the virtuosic Newborn is essentially the whole show anyway. He performs five jazz standards and three obscurities by jazz composers on this superb recital".
