Phil will never be forgotten by those who saw and heard him (I was lucky enough to many times). Everything is otherwise available on this set, except for three pieces by the Victor FReldman Modern Jazz Quartet (What Goes/Monsoon/Birds Last Flight). these pieces are making their fiorst appearance on CD so the 4 CD set is worth buying for these three tracks alone. Obviously inspired by the MJQ Vic's group swings more than Mr Lewis's ensemble ever did. On Birds Last Flight, the little heard Derek Humble on alto and Tommy Pollard, an early casualty of the British Modern jazz lifestyle, a fantastic pianist.

I have to point out that (just in case you missed them on Properboxes Ronnie Scott and Joe Harriott sets) three of the only four tracks recorded by the 1955 Scott Big Band make yet another appearance.

Great music, but you always feel Proper produce 4 star rather than 5 star sets because of the sometimes haphazard production and missed tracks (the fourth Ronnie Scott title, a ballad feature for Ronnie called "With Every Breath I Take") isn't even included on Ronnie's Properbox.

Already have some of these tracks but wonderful to hear Phil again with a variety of musicians, like going back in time for me.

An excellent trawl through the cream of British Jazz in the 1950s.Tubby, Ronnie, Victor Feldman, Jimmy Deuchar and Joe Harriott are all here. Generous playing time on each of the 4 cds and good sound quality.If you buy the other Proper Boxes for Ronnie Scott, Tubby Hayes and Joe Harriott there is quite a bit of overlap of the tracks,but considering the price of each box set it's not a big grumble.
