Saxophonist Mike Phillips shines on the Brazilian pop jewel, “Setembro”

Throughout his impressive career, Mike Phillips has played for many dignitaries (Nelson Mandela) and played alongside many musical giants (Stevie Wonder, Simply Red). The saxophonist/songwriter’s philosophy that has brought him extremely far in his over two decade career in New York City playing with Boyz II Men, Rachelle Ferrell and others stems from more than just a technical standpoint. Between admiration for his heroes Dexter Gordon and John Coltrane, Phillips’s admirers like Angie Stone also vouch for his musical passion and musicality.

From his 2001 Hidden Beach debut, Phillips flawlessly shifts between R&B, hip-hop, blues and traditional jazz. For his latest single on The SoNo Music Group, Phillips re-inteprets “Setembro” (Brazilian Wedding Song), co-written by Brazilian pop icon Ivan Lins and recorded by Take 6 and Sarah Vaughn for Quincy Jones’ Grammy nominated Back on the Block project. The gorgeous Latin kick decorated by Munyungo Jackson’s conga framing and a busy brass sextet lends a smooth, yet sophisticated organic arrangement that favor Phillips’ colorful adlibs. Undoubtedly, “Setembro” should find its way to the contemporary jazz airwaves in a heartbeat.

“Setembro” is currently available on most digital outlets. Look for Mike’s new album “Pulling Off The Covers” on Jan. 24th, 2020. Visit his website by clicking here.
