What musicians say about Phil Robson

“Phil Robson is one of the best guitar players in the world today. His musical ideas flow continually and with a seamless logic. His technique is flawless and is in service to his fertile imagination. One of my favorites and a source of inspiration! Don’t miss an opportunity to hear this modern giant!!” Peter Bernstein

“Phil Robson is one of New York’s most brilliant Jazz Guitarists!” Vic Juris

“Phil Robson is the real deal: swinging, melodic, contemporary – he’s a master of great voicings and modern linear phrasing! You’re going to dig what he has to share with you!” Sheryl Bailey

“Phil is a wonderful guitarist and composer, definitely a unique player. We had a ball…” David Liebman

“Phil Robson is a disturbingly good jazz guitarist!” Wayne Krantz

On the trail of Pannonica, The Jazz Baroness!

Robson is following in the footsteps of ‘The Jazz Baroness’ aka Nica aka Baroness Kathleen Annie Pannonica de Koenigswarter (née Rothschild). He has settled in Weehawken, NJ with partner Christine Tobin, having recently decided to make NYC & the USA his current base. Weehawken is a township of Hudson County & is a mere ten minutes away from 42nd St, Port Authority, NYC. Pannonica was a great patron of jazz & jazz musicians, particularly of Thelonious Monk. Living so close to Nica’s former house (also known as ‘Catsville’ & currently inhabited by the great Barry Harris) has certainly been an inspiration to Robson & he has enjoyed reading the book on the subject by Hanna Rothschild. UK connections continue of course & Phil will be making appearances in the UK from time to time over the next few months. Please see ‘live dates’ for details.
