Flip Phillips 1 of 8
aclark July 16, 04
Flip Phillips remains one of my all-time favourite tenor players. I don't really think he got the credit or recognition he deserved. (Hmmm. Because he was white???) His tone was so rich and warm, and he could swing so madly as well as play so tenderly on ballads. But the thing that separates Flip from all the other tenormen was that his sound was always so happy. Flip made you feel happy just to listen to him. He will be missed.
