Jazz Is PHSH
JAZZ IS PHSH is an instrumental tribute to Phish inspired by the popular tribute to The Grateful Dead, "Jazz is Dead". JAZZ IS PHSH is a collective of prominent musicians from the Jazz and Jam scenes that have come together in their appreciation of Phish music to reimagine Phish in an instrumental, jazz fusion setting! The arrangements and performances of the band are built around their upcoming album which will feature many amazing musicians including Dennis Chambers (Santana, Miles Davis, Parliament Funkadelic), Jeff Coffin (Dave Matthews Band, The Flecktones), Chris Bullock (Snarky Puppy), Michael Ray (Sun Ra, Giant Country Horns, Cosmic Crewe), Kofi Burbridge (Tedeschi Trucks Band, Aquarium Rescue Unit, Trey Anastasio Band), Grant Green Jr. (Groove Masters), Anthony Wellington (Victor Wooten Band), & many more!
Founded in 2015 by The Chase Brothers, Adam Chase and Matthew Chase, JAZZ IS PHSH has quickly become a world renown tribute to Phish, attracting some of the most influential musicians in the jazz and jam scenes to take part in this collective approach to paying tribute to one of the most important and influential bands in Rock and Roll history.
With the music of Phish being both largely improvised as well as highly composed, the framework of Phish's music is the perfect vehicle for exploring in an instrumental setting. The compositions are both challenging and adaptive. Jazz is Phish provides an exploration of Phish music unlike anything else.
Grammy Award-winning saxophonist/composer Chris Bullock strives to push the boundaries of musical categorization. He can be found performing in many different genres. A product of the Carolina’s, Chris developed a desire to play music from early piano lessons, long-haired garage bands, and late night music on public radio. He eventually found his way to the saxophone. In 2009, Chris relocated to NYC where he has since established the beginnings of a fruitful professional career as a musician. He has had the opportunity to perform all around the world, including many of the major jazz and music festivals including North Sea Jazz Fest, Montreaux Jazz Festival, Newport Jazz Festival, Shanghai Jazz Fest, London Jazz Fest, etc.
Chris devotes a large amount of his time performing, recording, and touring with the band Snarky Puppy. With this band and Lalah Hathaway, he won a Grammy Award in 2014 for the Best R&B Performance.
Some of the artists he has had the opportunity to perform/record with include Banda Magda, Jon Hendricks, Lalah Hathaway, Jason Marsalis, Bernard Wright, Clyde Stubblefield, Ari Hoenig, Jeff Coffin, and N’dambi.
Chris has actively been involved with educational activities. He was an adjunct instructor of Saxophone at the University of Texas -Arlington for two years. He has also taught clinics and saxophone lessons at many schools, colleges, and conservatories around the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia.
Apart from playing the saxophone, flute, and clarinet, Chris has begun to explore making hip hop and electronic music with the MPC. This has led to him DJ'ing as well. His DJ name is DJ Boomtown. He has hosted nights of music in the US, Canada, and the UK as a DJ.
Look to see what’s next on the horizon for Chris Bullock, as he continues to explore new and challenging musical environments.
