Phill C’s Musical journey started at the age of six in a second grade class at St Francis Middle School Caterham, London where he was first introduced to the glockenspiel and the Xylophone. The mid nineties saw him involved in producing, arranging, and engineering recordings of different artistes until he began to record several compositions of his own. He continued to study record and experiment with jazz with other musicians. He met Jazz Jamaica band members on their 1995 tour. Their ability to fuse other non-jazz related elements with jazz fascinated him. (He was later to work with Claude Deppa who he met during that tour.) Also meeting and learning from Chick Corea in 2001 had a major part to play in his overall disposition towards experimentation and creativity in jazz.
Influences: Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, McCoy Tyner, Keith Jarrett, Bob James, Bill Evans, Oscar Peterson, Joe Sample, Quincy Jones, and Take Six.
