Robson’s choice

Hammond-influenced jazz trio hits Birmingham.

There’s a Transatlantic feel to Birmingham Jazz’s presentation this week as they welcome New Yorker Phil Robson and the fantastic Organ Trio to the Red Lion in the Jewellery Quarter. Phil Robson, an incredibly versatile and creative guitar player as well as composer, named Musician of the Year at 2009 Parliamentary Jazz Awards, nominated in three categories this year, including Instrumentalist of the Year, has joined forces with the Hammond virtuoso Ross Stanley and the inspiring and powerful drummer Gene Calderazzo to form this all-star band.

The exceptional musicianship of all members is unquestionable. Together, as a new band they’ve created a very refreshing and compelling mix. The music is sensational, played with great energy and the incredible rapport between the three members is something that definitely sets this band apart. 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.
