All star quartet demonstrate their prowess across many styles of jazz
Phil Robson, internationally acclaimed, multi award winning guitarist and celebrated composer was a long-term fixture in the British & European jazz world. He is now an integral part of the New York scene, where he has been based since 2015. On this European tour, Phil brings his latest US band which features the great saxophonist Jed Levy who shares the composer’s role with Phil.
The quartet features the great American drummer Clarence Penn and fantastic bassist Oli Hayhurst. The original music written by Phil & Jed is innovative & contemporary whilst drawing on the vast tradition of jazz, across the whole spectrum of styles. The emphasis is on strong melodies and grooves and the tunes are vehicles for improvisation, allowing each musician to use their experience to make them their own. This will be the very best musical melting pot and a night not to miss!
“Phil Robson is one of the best guitar players in the world today. His musical ideas flow continually and with a seamless logic. His technique is flawless and is in service to his fertile imagination. One of my favourites and a source of inspiration! Don’t miss an opportunity to hear this modern giant!!” – Peter Bernstein.
