“Every number is elegantly developed by Robson. His probing streams of  consciousness touch corners of the jazz mind lesser guitarists cannot  reach.” **** 4 Stars,   Evening Standard.

Award winning guitarist Phil Robson returns to the Vortex Jazz Club with Hammond organ virtuoso Ross Stanley and the inspiring and powerful drummer Gene Calderazzo to present his all-star trio. Influenced by such legends as Pat Martino, Wes Montgomery and John McLaughlin, you will hear powerful melodies, grooves and burning improv all melded together by the formidable blend of guitar and Hammond, driven by Gene’s dynamic drumming.

"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
