Phil Robson, guitar; James Genus ,double bass; Billy Hart, drums; guest pianist is Marc Copland

'Anyone can jet into New York, gather together a scratch session band and make an album but not anyone can do so with such obvious empathy between the musicians, a recognisable band sound, and such obvious joy in making high quality music… A world-class set of urbane sophisticated acoustic jazz, which combines consistent invention with an overall identifiable musical personality.' (Alyn Shipton Jazzwise, April 2004)

'A glance at these names confirms the regard in which Robson is now held on the other side of the Atlantic. His style now no longer owes any obvious debt to other players' (Jack Massarik, London Evening Standard Metro)

One of the most talented, critically rated contemporary guitarists in the UK, Phil Robson's second CD entitled 'Screenwash' is released on Babel in April 2004. Proving he 'can hold his head up on any jazz stage in the world' (John Fordham, The Guardian), this set was recently recorded in New York and features the cream of that vibrant city's jazz musicians with bassist James Genus, drummer Billy Hart as well as guest pianist Marc Copland. Up to this point, much of the focus of Phil's work until now has been either as co-leader of the energetic, jazz-rock outfit Partisans - one of the popular highlights of the Cheltenham Festival 2003 where they performed with guitarist Wayne Krantz - where he is as much composer as performer, as with his octet or with critically acclaimed vocalist Christine Tobin. He started working with his UK trio in 2001 displaying his writing and playing skills in a more intimate context. 'Impish' his debut CD for Babel was made in September 2001, and pianist John Taylor, a big fan of Phil's playing, is on 4 of the tracks. 'One of the crop of young UK guitarists who combine the technical expertise of classic beboppers such as Wes Montgomery and Kenny Burrell with the bite and muscle of a post-funk generation raised on Hendrix, Scofield and Metheny. Robson's prospects as a composer are fast catching up with his improvisational skills.' (John Fordham, Guardian April 2002)
