Release group by Simon Phillips & Jeff Babko.

Best known for his work in the pop/rock world, British drummer Simon Phillips successfully embraces acoustic post-bop and hard bop on Vantage Point - a 1999 session that finds him co-leading a quintet with pianist Jeff Babko and playing alongside Los Angeles residents Walt Fowler (trumpet, flügelhorn), Brandon Fields (tenor and soprano sax), and Dave. Carpenter (acoustic bass). Vantage Point doesn't sound anything like Phillips' work with Toto, the ultra-commercial pop/rock unit that he joined in the 1990s (when he replaced the late Jeff Porcaro).

Phillips was the drummer on the 1976 album 801 Live with Phil Manzanera and Brian Eno. He worked as a session drummer for Jeff Beck, Gary Moore, Bernie Marsden, Mike Oldfield, Judas Priest, Tears for Fears, and The Who. He was the drummer for The Who during the band's American reunion tour in 1989. He became Toto's drummer in 1992 after the death of Jeff Porcaro  . In 2006, Phillips released a DVD with his jazz band, Vantage Point, called Resolution with writer and pianist Jeff Babko, trumpeter Walt Fowler, saxophonist Brandon Fields, and bassist Alphonso Johnson. Phillips was a member of Hiromi: The Trio Project 2011-16. In 2015 at The 14th Annual Independent Music Awards, Phillips was the winner in the Jazz Instrumental Album category for "Protocol II".

Simon Phillips/jeff Babko. Exclusive Prime pricing. With this album, Simon Phillips reinvents himself. On one hand, he completely leaves the path of his previous albums that, to me, could clearly be considered Jazz Fusion and turns to "old fashioned" jazz. On the other hand, Simon continues to play his instrument in a truly artistic manner. However, without lessening his impact, a lot of praise needs to go to co author and pianist Jeff Babko, as well as Walter Fowler and Brandon Fields.
