Flip Phillips traveled and worked with some of the greatest musicians and bands in the world from his days with the first Woody Herman Herd, Jazz at the Philharmonic and Benny Goodman tours. Flip had a wonderful three-year run at a club in Florida named The Beowulf, and although The Beowulf no longer exists the memories of great music linger on in this double CD recorded in December, 1977 and October, 1978.
"The tunes are arranged and executed beautifully - loose enough to allow for individual expression but tight enough to satisfy my need for musical integrity."
