Phil, a renowned alto player, earned the prestigious title of the #1 alto player by the Downbeat Readers Poll a staggering 30 times, a testament to his exceptional talent and artistry. This clip, captured during the legendary 1971 Colorado Jazz Party, serves as a vivid demonstration of his musical prowess.
In 2007, Phil was honored with the esteemed “Jazz Master” award by the National Endowment for the Arts, a recognition that solidified his status as a true master of the genre.
It’s important to note that this clip is just a glimpse of a more extensive film, and we owe a debt of gratitude to Jim Eigo for bringing its existence to our attention.
