Hey, we all knew the guy could play some cool grooves, and do a lot of different feels - early Genesis was some of the most subtle drumming ever, but of course the direction of the music changed...here, Phil Collins seems to have really studied the mecahnics of the music - it seems he's always loved this stuff - and he just plays it straight, some good simple funk, a few legitimately swinging numbers, decent brushes, no grandstanding. Timings good, it flows. Even some of the dippier pop stuff seems to make for good jazz arrangements. Sounds like too much work to have been a vanity project - I'll take this over
This album is simply INDISPENSABLE!!!   The Phil Collins Big Band was really A BIG BAND!   They got mix JAZZ with a LATIN SWING and the musicians are abnormally sensational.   PHIL COLLINS is fantastic on DRUMS.   GERALD ALBRIGHT put "house on fire" with his ALTO SAX. (This man plays TOO MUCH! part of KENNY G team...)   HARRY KIM show us WHAT IS A TRUMPET in his solos...   ... ALL METAL PLAYERS ARE WONDERFUL!   - Well, if you love the REAL GOOD MUSIC, or you HAVE this album, or you MUST HAVE it...
