ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Music can be defined as sound, vibration and rhythmic connections with the soul. It is this ingenious understanding of music that allows Phil Davis to become music. This native of Atlanta does not shy from his talents and voices his thoughts and feelings though musical productions. It has always been Phil's mission to make quality music and promote the Atlanta Underground sound.

Phil’s journey has sparked his business savvy and thus PhD Productions was created in 1994. This producer, keyboardist and songwriter has worked with local, regional and national artists. He contributes his musical monologues in his “conversation” solos to the likes of Herbie Hancock, George Duke and Joe Sample. He has had the pleasure of performing with Sheila E., Will Downing, Stanley Clarke, George Duke, Rachelle Ferrell, Prince, Alex Bugnon, Boney James, Michael McDonald, Philip Bailey, Dionne Farris, Bone Crusher, Cee-Lo, and Erykah Badu. Phil has also performed with Jennifer Holiday, the late George Howard, Johnathan Butler and a host of others.

Some additional credits and accolades include Producing Alex Bugnon’s last two CD’s, “Free” and “Southern Living”, producing 3 songs on Walter Beasley's upcoming CD, "Ready For Love", being the Musical Director for "That Comedy Show" on Turner South, song producer for "Star Search" on CBS for 2 years. He also wrote the title track on Boney James' “Body Language” and “Pure” as well as the writer & performer on the new Boney James & Rick Braun CD, "Shake It Up". Phil also served as the writer & producer of two tracks on the late George Howards' album, "Midnight Mood", writer of two tracks on Alex Bugnon's "As Promise", and the producer and performer of three tracks of Al Jarreau's latest CD "Tomorrow Today".

----------ABOUT CAPE COAST-------------

The name Cape Coast (Phil's 1st CD release) originates from his 1995 trip to Ghana, West Africa. While touring with late saxophonist George Howard, Phil was struck by the warmth of the people and the richness of the culture. The new, modern cities with their high-rises and crowded streets stood in stark contrast to the old, still relics of history.

A particularly poignant landmark was the Cape Coast castle, whose dungeons held thousands of enslaved Africans Bound for Europe and the Americas. This eloquent blend of the past and present convinced Phil to give voice to his own project. Cape Coast is that voice.

Great musical ride.
This was one of my favorite CD's that I bought when mp3.com was up in the past. A great blend of smooth grooves and well thought out melodic and harmonic ideas.
