Drummer Simon Phillips is widely known and revered for his work with rock guitar legend Jeff Beck, the Pop group Toto, appearances with numerous progressive bands, stints on some fairly recent Buddy Rich Tribute recordings and over the last several years, a string of fine fusion-based solo outings. And while Phillips is considered one of the most powerful drummers on the planet, many folks don’t associate his laudable and quite enviable talents with the world of jazz

Phillips was the drummer on the 1976 album 801 Live with Phil Manzanera and Brian Eno. He worked as a session drummer for Jeff Beck, Gary Moore, Bernie Marsden, Mike Oldfield, Judas Priest, Tears for Fears, and The Who. He was the drummer for The Who during the band's American reunion tour in 1989. He became Toto's drummer in 1992 after the death of Jeff Porcaro  . In 2006, Phillips released a DVD with his jazz band, Vantage Point, called Resolution with writer and pianist Jeff Babko, trumpeter Walt Fowler, saxophonist Brandon Fields, and bassist Alphonso Johnson. Phillips was a member of Hiromi: The Trio Project 2011-16. In 2015 at The 14th Annual Independent Music Awards, Phillips was the winner in the Jazz Instrumental Album category for "Protocol II".

With this album, Simon Phillips reinvents himself. On one hand, he completely leaves the path of his previous albums that, to me, could clearly be considered Jazz Fusion and turns to "old fashioned" jazz. On the other hand, Simon continues to play his instrument in a truly artistic manner. However, without lessening his impact, a lot of praise needs to go to co author and pianist Jeff Babko, as well as Walter Fowler and Brandon Fields
