"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…" LondonJazzNews
