Born in Derby 1970, guitarist Phil Robson had already enjoyed an exciting career from the age of 14 onwards playing in his home town with such visiting musicians as John Etheridge and Bheki Msleku as well as with his clarinettist father, Trevor Robson. Moving to London at the age of 18, he attended the Guildhall School of Music being one of the youngest students ever to do the post graduate jazz course at that time. Phil’s work credits include Big Jon Patton, Charles Earland, Billy Hart, James Genus, Kenny Wheeler, John Taylor, Mike Gibbs, Tim Garland, Django Bates, Bobby Wellins and he co leads the acclaimed group ‘Partisans’ with Julian Siegel. "One of the crop of UK guitarists who combine the technical expertise of classic beboppers such as Wes Montgomery and Kenny Burrell with the bite and muscle of a post-funk generation raised on Hendrix, Scofield and Metheny" - John Fordham, The Guardian
