Other Info
Join us for an evening of high-energy, funk fueled instrumentals from one of the NW's most ridiculously talented bands. Led by New Orleans transplant and tenor/soprano sax man, Devin Phillips (The Headhunters, Delfeayo Marsalis, Los Hombres Calientes, Goodfoot All-Stars), The DPB explosively re-creates the progressive, psychedelic-laced, funk/jazz fusion of such artists as Herbie Hancock and the Headhunters, Quincy Jones, Bantu Village-era Blue Mitchell and the polyrhythmic thump and squeal of Miles' electric years.
Electric bass, drums, clavinet/rhodes and guitar keep the dance floor bouncing while Devin's sax twist the melodics into new shapes and keep your intellect satisfied. Come get some.
Devin Phillips – Saxophones
Eddie Martinez – Guitar
Chris Mathews – Drums
Eric Lewis - Bass

wade in the water

DEVIN PHILLIPS: WADE IN THE WATER is more than a jazz CD; it's also the story of a young jazz musician losing one home, but finding another in the Pacific Northwest.
