It is hard to categorise Robson’s style of playing & writing, as so many influences & experiences have gone into the melting pot .Earlier, prevailing influences such as Hendrix & Miles, Parker, Kessell and Wes blend with many elements from the wider jazz world such as Ornette Coleman, Dave Holland, McCoy Tyner etc , as well as with dimensions from African & Brazilian music, 20th century composers & contemporary musicians of all kinds as well as maintaining a respect for the entire jazz tradition. He has recorded many solo & co-led CDs for the ground breaking indie label ‘Babel’ & more recently for ‘Whirlwind recordings Ltd’. Since re-locating to NYC Phil is rapidly become one of the leading lights on his instrument on the scene there. Tonight’s trio includes rising star Mark Lewandowski who is also a current New York resident and Cuban drum master Ernesto Simpson. Expect fire!
