GREG PHILLINGANES is a singer, songwriter and studio ace keyboard player known for his work with Stevie Wonder, Eric Clapton, Michael Jackson and Toto. I interviewed him for my “What Is Melody?” BBC radio series and he demonstrates his work with Herbie Hancock. As a bonus, you can hear “Jump Back”, an unreleased track I wrote with British singer Clive Griffin. The London session was as brilliant as you’d expect with Steve Ferrone on drums, Nathan East on Bass, Jess Bailey on Clavinet and Greg going absolutely bonkers on the piano. It was sounding so great, I threw off my professional producer’s hat and let the session turn into a big time jam. Enjoy!!!
