David Phy and Joe D

“David Phy, a Kentucky native and now New Orleans resident and professor at the University of New Orleans, jumps on the tailgaters’ bandwagon, swinging to both jazz standards and original material on the cleverly titled Me, Myself and Phy. With Phy playing tenor trombones, the low tones are enforced by the addition of bass trombonist Jeff Albert. This combination, plus the way the material is arranged, results in many of the selections having a big-band flavor as heard on Phy’s opener, “Gone After You.””

“Hardcore jazz fans should be swarming Steven David’s [NightClub] to hear David Phy and his quintet, the Jazz Standard….Backed by saxophonist Juan Turros, drummer Todd Smith, bassist Eric Renquist, pianist Etsuko Mader and trumpeter Mike Gonzales, The Jazz Standard has been raising the standard of jazz in Vegas.” -Columnist Jerry Fink

[Director, Tom] Hook has assembled, an engaging powerhouse ensemble of soloists. The dynamic brass line drives the show with vivid force… David Phy’s trombone sounds like a big band unto itself.
