Jazz Trumpet Recording & Live Performance
“The ballads album Miles Davis never recorded.” —East Bay Express
“On a blindfold test, a good guess might be: ‘Chet Baker’…soft, rich, open horn tone. ★★★★★” —All About Jazz
“…pristine and moving trumpet sound…Phillips nods to his predecessor’s (Chet Baker's) fragility but also imparts a feeling of strength that comes through a sense of restraint. ★★★★ ” —DownBeat
