Q&A: Simon Phillips

Phillips is one of the most in-demand drummers of the last four decades. He has played gigs with everyone from Mick Jagger to David Gilmour, and had a 21-year career with Toto.

Phillips has just released his fifth solo album, Protocol II, a collection of jazz fusion that marks the 25th anniversary of his debut solo album, Protocol. The Protocol group, which features Ernest Tibbs on bass, Andy Timmons on guitars and Steve Weingart on keyboards, are set to record another album this month. Phillips’ other projects include acoustic jazz combo Vantage Point and he has recently been playing in Japan in the trio Hiromi, with virtuoso pianist Hiromi Uehara and contrabass guitarist, Anthony Jackson.
