Flip Phillips – Your Place Or Mine?
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.”
