Press Quotes

“Phillips provides lush and full chord voicings in just the right places, and solos effortlessly. His tone is clean and traditional while his improvised lines are much more in the free jazz genre in their direction. Dan Phillips is an interesting player who blends a modern and free approach with a more mainstream tone.”

Review of “Bangkok Edge” Vince Lewis Guitar International 2013


“Phillips innovative and improvisational mindset is still held together with the glue that is his strict belief in melody. He seems to know, without hesitation, when to break free of the textbook, yet recovers back to the basic principles of arrangement and composition. As a fine navigator, Phillips sets his compass by pure gut instinct, a
refreshing trait of a leader!”

“Rising above the nauseam of the traditionally bland attempts from others in the past, Phillips always seems, in all his work, to strive and succeed in keeping the sound fresh and expressive in feel and style.”

Review of "Bangkok Edge" Karl Strober Cadence Magazine July 2013


"When Phillips cuts loose he's as exciting a guitarist as there is, though he never abandons melody. He gets under the skin of the composer and inhabits a tune, reworking it in his own idiom. And as his originals here and on his previous albums as leader demonstrate, he creates pretty high standards of his own design." Review of "Bangkok Edge", allaboutjazz.com, 2012

“Phillips is, without question, a skilled guitarist. His playing is fluid and understated, but he’s not above progressing through lengthy jams and pushing things to their limits. He solos deeply rather than broadly, tunnelling in to find the consistency of the notes and probing their meaning with sleek flourishes and impactful holds.” Review of "Bangkok Edge, Canadian Audiophile, 2012
Phillips in particular stands out for his fluid, whimsical articulations that’s alternately fleet-fingered and thoughtful, but always fresh and not clichéd. Phillips, as is made clear on this song, is one of those “looks hard, sounds effortless” type of guitar players. Review of "Bangkok Edge, Something Else Reviews, 2012
“one of the most original guitarists and composers currently on the jazz scene”. review allaboutjazz.com 2010

“brilliant recording of contemporary improvisation at it’s best….. an elite and highly imaginative composer……….Phillips has a very unique guitar style.” Review of Dan Phillips Trio CD Destination Unknown, Jazz Improv Magazine 4/08
“he opens the vista in a swell of notes that cut, roll and sweep ahead in a near torrent…..The textures weave and bob, taking flight on the wings of their imagination.” (review of Dan Phillips Trio “A Moment of Clarity”
