Atlanta-based Jazz Musician
Studio & Live Performance – Trumpet & Flugelhorn
Growing up in the rural south with county music at its core, it seemed like the last place one would find the origins of a talented jazz trumpet player. Phil’s passion for music started in the 4th grade where he became entranced with the trumpet. Maybe it was due to his father playing ‘Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass’ records a thousand times while he was growing up, but whatever the reason, Phil never looked back and has sought to master his instrument through decades of performing and teaching.
