Respected British drummer Simon Phillips has a resume that’s as long as your arm…assuming you have a long arm. Here on his fourth release under the Protocol title he once again is performing with Greg Howe, Ernest Tibbs and Dennis Hamm. Together they’ve created fifty-eight minutes of some of the finest instrumental Fusion music I’ve heard in a long time. Most of these tunes are longer, in the six to eight minute range allowing for a great mix of combo performance and soloing. After all, this is a genre and an album that showcases performance and instrumental virtuosity, and on Protocol 4 we get plenty of both.

Protocol II arrives fourteen years after drummer Simon Phillips' last leader date—the hard bop and post-bop based Vantage Point (Jazzline Records, 2000). And it comes approximately a quarter century after the original Protocol (Music for Nations, 1988)—a true solo date that had Phillips covering all the instruments, filling in the space around his calling-card drumming.

A professional musician from the age of 12, Simon Phillips' drumming sound and style is instantly recognizable. He's toured and recorded with just about every major rock and pop act imaginable; from Mick Jagger, The Who and Toto to Judas Priest, Mike Oldfield, and Joe Satriani. Protocol 3 is real-deal jazz rock. No avant-garde trappings, smooth jazz noodling or proggy pretensions (well, maybe a little bit of the latter) here.

2015 release. Brand new release from this fusion quartet whose 2014 Protocol II CD was one of the years best. The new album contains music inspired by the band’s live performances, taking the style of electric jazz fuzed with rock and this time experimenting with world music and blues.

Though jazz may possess an abundance of youthful energy, time has proven that the masters of the art form have a level of maturity. Only a musician with a lifetime of practice and performance in that art form can master all of the profound and complex nuances of the music.

Guitarist Mark O'Leary is usually classified as an avant garde artist, but his album CLOSURE isn't as far out as one might expect. The trio date, which includes drummer Ben Perowsky and pianist Uri Caine, is melodic and accessible, recalling some of the jazz-rock fusion projects of the 1970s. But this is not to say CLOSURE is safe and predictable. Caine, Perowsky, and O'Leary demonstrate a taut, mercurial interplay that favors subtle, complex invention over in-your-face skronk.Vigorously recommended ;)

This is a reissue of the 1977 album by Sonny Phillips, with original liner notes. Phillips marks Eddie Harris and Ahmad Jamal as his primary influences. Phillips studied under Jamal in the '50s and, like both players, he had a gentle, soulful ability. From Jamal, Phillips inherited or formulated a subtle, understated style of playing that used space and sounds akin to Miles Davis. It was in 1963 that Phillips toured as an organist with the great improviser Eddie Harris. On "My Black Flower," one can hear the beguiling, Jamal-inspired piano, and the organ fantasies are heard on "Me and Me Brudder." Another feature of this album is the inclusion of Latin rhythms, courtesy of conga and percussion journeyman Ralph Dorsey.
