Getting Your Phil

Our own Phil Mattson has gotten his share of shout outs from TCCAN and the local scene. All rightfully so. Here is another great feature that has been shared with our members, but worth broadcasting to a larger audience.

It is a slightly old feature from last Fall on TPT's Minnesota Originals series. Each segment is a short 5-10 minute documentary on local heroes who have put a stamp on the arts community, not just in town, but across the country. Those of us fortunate to have worked with him, know what a tremendous resource he can be as a musical director while we are at the mic. But his true gift has always been his spin on Jazz, and in particular - vocal arrangements. In this clip he talks about how he merges the concept of music theory to musicality and comes up with pure genius. His list of credits in huge and his impact nothing less. Please enjoy.
