Phil Slater is a trumpeter and composer who resides on the stunning coast of Illawarra. Surrounded by nature, with the calming scent of the ocean only a breeze away – Phil’s music is heavily influenced by one of Australia’s many terrestrial paradises.
As a composer and bandleader, Slater’s improvisations are open and textural with melodic and minimalist narratives that can only be attained through his distinctly unique vocabulary.
“Having assembled a band capable of matching his own bristling invention, [the band] exercise a restraint that’s makes their individual expression entirely subservient to Slater’s fresh vision of collective music-making.” – John Shand.
