"On Priorité, Sillery combines with his stalwart troupe for a solid session of post-bop, no modifications needed."
“Liam Sillery, a young trumpeter who favors unusual tension building intervals in his compositions but finds a striking balance between "in" and "out " playing. August 2011”
“Trumpeter Liam Sillery’s Phenomenology is so natural that only one word can be used to describe it: perfect. Hearkening back to the great outside-leaning Blue Note recordings of the mid and late-’60s, Phenomenology gets better with each listen, as details and intricacies continuously come to light that were missed previously. The music’s textures, rhythms and sonorities continuously morph, but not in a distracting, overbearing, or contrived way. There’s freedom and a relaxed ease in Phenomenology’s every facet, giving the listener a sense that what is heard is the only possible solution given the group’s vision. The end result is sublime. ”
