After several years in Asia guitarist Dan Phillips reunites with his Chicago Trio for their third release Destination Unknown. This release once again features Phillips's unique writing and playing style with artful contributions from two long time compatriots Tim Mulvenna and Krzysztof Pabian. From harmonically rich compositions to deep grooves and wide open blowing this release is tuneful, adventurous and indeed their best yet!

About the Dan Phillips Trio

I have had the good fortune of working with Tim and Krzysztof for nearly 10 years now and this is our third recording together. I may be credited with the compositions here but Tim and Krzysztof are truly equal contributors in the communication of the music. Despite living outside Chicago for the past several years now many of them in Asia I have returned regularly for gigs and sessions with these guys throughout that period as well as some performances overseas together. It is a rapport I have found nowhere else and hope can be heard clearly in this session. The compositions here are reflections on my personal experiences and travels over the past several years. Experiences I can't put into words are addressed here in a way I hope can be shared with others.
