Phil Davis | Philosophy [Urban Jazz]
The long-awaited third effort by keyboardist Phil Davis has finally arrived!! If you are a fan of Phil’s work, you will recognize and appreciate that this CD takes you further along his musical journey, and features a more mature sound. The collective tracks have a calming, settled vibe, with the occasional “rev up and dig in” quality that is Phil’s signature. This CD features several of Phil’s long-time friends and colleagues, like Najee and Lil John Roberts. Other featured musicians are: Billy Odum, Kebbi Williams, Ronnie Garrett, Melvin Baldwin, Sean Michael Ray, Rick Jordan, Darrell Freeman, Melvin Miller, Mark Strowbridge and Forrest Robinson. Enjoy the journey as Phil blends “tickling the ivories” with very colorful synth sounds and textures, plus the sound of the SY77 that is classic Phil Davis. – CDBaby.com
