Robin Phillips @ The Jam Factory, Oxford

Sunday 12 October 2014, 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Robin Phillips

Jazz singer/pianist Robin Phillips’ new Sing. Play. album tour will include a performance in Oxford.

The Sing. Play. album is a vocalese pilgrimage, inspired by one of the genre’s often-forgotten originators, King Pleasure. Vocalese is a style of jazz where a vocalist sings a solo that was once improvised, but with lyrics to create a new song. To add a new element to this genre, Robin uniquely combines voice and piano as he plays, as well as sings, the vocalese lines in unison. He has also added his own original lyrics to other solos, creating new vocalese tunes.

Living vocalese legend, Jon Hendricks, still gigging globally in his 90s, gave Robin’s album the seal of approval: “Well done, well sung!. You show great taste and discretion in this entire compilation. Ever onward into vocalese!”
