Live Jazz--No, Really! 

Derrek Phillips and Manufactory at Windows

Derrek Phillips and Manufactory at Windows
Perhaps best known locally as the rhythmic muscle behind The Dynamites' dynamic old-school R&B, drummer Derrek Phillips is a world-class talent whose turn-on-a-dime improvisatory skills, supple team playing and sensitive inner metronome made him the backbone of the Charlie Hunter Trio during his stint. This marks his first gig as a group leader since he moved to Nashville, and if the live MP3's from his New York club dates with his old band hold true--especially a simmering after-hours take on Prince's "The Ballad of Dorothy Parker"--he's the guy to convince arms-folded locals that live jazz can unlock even the tightest-clenched hips. Joining him are Paul Horton (keys) and Adam Agati (guitar). Also on the bill are The Dara Tucker Band and the Afro-Cuban grooves of Giovanni Rodriguez & the Santiago Bros.
