“Few have managed to channel (Hubbard) as effectively as Pharez Whitted, who honors the late giant with his combination of intensity and technique, spank and sparkle, and that hot-cider tone.” —Chicago Examiner
Pharez Whitted -][- FOR THE PEOPLE – [Origin Records, 2012] –
After a long hiatus from recording, Chicago trumpeter Pharez Whitted returned in 2010 with his critically acclaimed Transient Journey, and now, with another set of crackling originals. Though deeply rooted in the tradition of Freddie Hubbard, Lee Morgan and Dizzy, Pharez looks only forward with a thoroughly vital sound and modern compositional approach.
With his superb sextet, including guitarist Bobby Broom, saxophonist Eddie Bayard and pianist Ron Perrillo, Pharez further establishes his position as one of the top trumpet voices of his generation. -[Product Description | Amazon]-
