Outstanding new release by this heretofor unknown composer. Phillips writes beautiful pieces that are a cross between Steve Reich/Phillip Glass style minimalism, Carla Bley's large ensemble jazz/classical hybrids and the progressive styles of artists like Mike Oldfield or Brian Eno. The minimalism isn't overiding and Phillips goes in & out of that style at will. The music is scored for (at various times) alto/soprano sax, piccolo, flute, oboe, clarinet, alto flute, Tenor sax, english horn, baritone sax, bass clarinet, trumpet, flugelhorn, trombone, vibes, marimba, piano, percussion, 2 violins, 2 celli and bass. A true masterpiece that gets better with every listen!
