PHILLIPS, FLIP / Your Place Or Mine? -CD *Jump 12-10
Best remembered for his tenor saxophone playing with Norman Granz’ Jazz at the Philharmonic from 1946 to 1957 Flip Phillips was a giant of a jazz artist. Phillips moved to Florida in 1954 where aside from occasional tours he was content to play locally in semi-retirement. This 1963 duet recording with guitarist Dell Staton was one of only 2 albums Phillips made in the almost 20 years period after JATP. Your Place Or Mine? “finds Phillips in excellent form playing a variety of his favorite standards…the superior playing by Flip on such songs as ‘Ja Da’, ‘Jazz Me Blues’ and ‘Gone With The Wind’ makes this an album to look for.” -Allmusic. To be available on compact disc for the first time.
