"Rawrip.com editoral review"

With the eagerness of Justin Timberlake and the adroitness of Phil Collins this new, young and sensational jazz performer has so much energy he could play aside Jack Johnson with Marty Pellow on backing vocals and opportunely hold his own. A voice that cries to God and a passion unlike any other, the hunger is almost convulsing in the words of Phil Baxter as he bends his larynx over to make some of the most lasting and uplifting acoustic jazz this side of the San Francisco uprising. Not in the least bit dry or melodramatic, Baxter has soul enough to become the next James Blunt, only with a voice that doesn’t make you want to beat your grandma to death. You can’t believe something so colourful has come from England, but indeed it has! - www.rawrip.com


"Portobello Acoustic Sessions Review"

Phil Baxter's sweet love songs are, as he says, "Pop jazz funk in an acoustic setting." That's a pretty good estimation, really, although if you could fit "soul" in there somewhere it would be spot on. Some of Phil's stuff is like the slower parts of Motown artists' repertoire in terms of feel and songwriting ability, which, I shouldn't have to explain, is a very high accolade indeed. There's also the occasional Latin influence, like in "What's A Dance Between Friends", but the funk rock element is one that really shows through, the one which gives Phil's music power, rhythm and, most importantly, awesomeness. - http://portobelloacousticsessions.blogspot.com/
