Eric Phillips Rejoins Mark Trammell Quartet
December 5, 2011 Leave a comment
When it was announced that Joel Wood was leaving the Mark Trammell Quartet, one name stood above others as the person most desired to see take the open tenor position: that of former Mark Trammell Trio tenor, Eric Phillips. Today in a Facebook post, that wish became reality. Phillips rejoins the group after serving as a police officer in Gadsden, AL for the past two years. It’s great to see Phillips back with the group, his voice just had an “it factor” alongside of Mark and Dustin Sweatman, and it will be interesting to hear him with the bass foundation that Pat Barker provides. Santa came early this year!
