“The ballads album Miles Davis never recorded.”East Bay Express

“On a blindfold test, a good guess might be: ‘Chet Baker’…soft, rich, open horn tone. ★★★★★”All About Jazz

“…pristine and moving trumpet sound…Phillips nods to his predecessor’s (Chet Baker's) fragility but also imparts a feeling of strength that comes through a sense of restraint. ★★★★ ” DownBeat
