What They Say...

“Nick Phillips’ name is on hundreds of major recordings, but not as a player. He’s produced a slew of artists, and crucial jazz reissues, for such labels as Concord, but his track record at this job should not overshadow his 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. ★★★★ ”


“I have been enjoying hearing [bassist] Ariane Cap play for a few years now. Her monstrous groove grabbed my attention the first time I heard her.”
