We’re continuing this epic June line-up with a real treat this week at Jazz @ The Oxford, as we look forward to welcoming the master guitarist and composer Phil Robson and his new Organ Trio, as part of their national tour!
Phil Robson’s Organ Trio:
Phil Robson – guitar
Ross Stanley – hammond organ
Gene Caldarazzo – drums
An award-winning musician of international renown, Phil Robson has fronted many impressive projects over the years (not to mention his prolific work as a sideman) featuring such musical luminaries as Billy Hart, James Genus, Christine Tobin, Dave Liebman, Julian Arguelles, Mark Turner, Jeff Williams, Gareth Lockrane, Tom Herbert and a great many more. This new project sees Phil join forces with organ supremo Ross Stanley and legendary drummer Gene Caldarazzo for his own personal take on that great, soulful jazz staple – the organ trio!
The concept of an organ trio has always been close to Phil Robson’s heart, but he wanted to feel that he had his own, unique take on this great tradition before forming one himself, an ambition which has been fully realised – the music is fresh, exciting, played with great energy and much of it is brand new!
“Phil is a wonderful guitarist and composer, definitely a unique player. We had a ball and hopefully I will be able to play with Phil again.” David Liebman
“Phil Robson is a disturbingly good jazz guitar player!” Wayne Krantz
“Phil Robson’s music, on a first hearing, always gives me that feeling I haven’t yet heard right the way through it to the other side. Yes, there are moments of beauty, external allure, yes there is variety. But there is also a depth which brings one back wanting to revisit, to hear more and more….. I can only describe this group as unmissable.” londonjazz.blogspot.com
This gig will no doubt prove to be one of the highlights of our year here at Jazz @ The Oxford – do come down and join us!
