Phillip Brooks – Ocean View

This album is the first since his 2008 release Just between us and is a great collection of songs old and new. This project is dedicated to the memory of my good friend the late great Wayman Tisdale and embodies some styling and genus of this musical superstar.You will play this CD over and over again as you just can’t get enough of Phil’s sweet melodies and rhythms.

All acoustically recorded with state of the art Mastering. Other Detroit featured musicians and vocalist on this project include Alan(Snoop)Evans on Bass, Jeff Allison on Solo Bass, Eric Brice on lead guitar, Steveon Bibes, Dave Buford and Larry Tucker on Drums, Yancyy on Sax, Melvin Wells on Tenor Sax, Catrina Brooks, Takara Bolton,Toni Dunbar, Jiana Hunter and Adam Ness on vocals.

Ocean View marks some of his best work to date. A smooth collection of memorable favorites mixed with some funky yet smooth original love songs and arrangements. You will love having this CD as a part of your collection and will play it over and over again.  We discovered this album under Contemporary Jazz at CDBaby.
