Phil Best – solo piano project in classical, post-minimal and colouristic jazz styles, featuring Phil’s own dramatic, atmospheric and richly coloured pieces and improvisations, and sometimes including repertoire by the classical composers – Chopin, Debussy, Mozart, Bach, Rachmaninov, Beethoven etc. – played in a fresh & accessible way, on contemporary and futuristic pianos using exciting new technology.
Phil has released 5 solo piano albums: Inside Stories (improvisations); a Mozart album; a Liszt and Ravel album; Freshly Squeezed (improvisations); and Chopin Nocturnes. His new album, Nocturnal, featuring 10 of his own Nocturnes, will be available on Spotify and AppleMusic and other music sites very shortly. Phil also has music on SoundCloud and video performances on YouTube.
PJ Best – Jazz/soul project featuring sweet, soulful vocals, intricate piano, warm, dusky electric pianos and all manner of sounds played on the keyboard or the extraordinary Roli SeaBoard.
Phil writes poetic original songs with a nostalgic yet original style and a subtle but powerful emotional connection: whether sweet, smooth, funky, chilled or dark and moody, this music always has rich melodies and delicious juicy harmonies.
He will be publishing more music on YouTube and SoundCloud tracks shortly and will release a full album, early next year.
