SIMON STRETCHES OUT
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This CD is a great find for all musicians listening to contemporary jazz. The level of musicianship is very high. Simon Phillips is, of course, just fantastic. On this, his third solo effort, he turns off the sequencers and does it all with real musicians. The ensemble contains the core from Force Majeure - Anthony Jackson, Ray Russle and adds Mitch Forman and various percussionists. Several of the compositions seem to have more body than Simon's earlier work without losing any of the Simon signature fireworks. Absolute must for any drummer. I would have given it 5 stars but I would reserve that rating for aclassics like 'A Love Supreme" or 'Kind of Blue' and so forth>"
A really great disc

"When I saw Symbiosis at the shop I only knew that Simon Phillips was a drummer. I really did not know anything further. Now I believe that Simon Phillips is one of the greatest drummers I ever heard. Besides he has a particular virtue... he does not try to impress, he just plays what the song really needs."
