Phil Aiken and I started playing together in the early 2000’s in the band The Blizzard of 78. We continue to collaborate to this day with my solo material and his band The Phil Aiken Army. Our intuition for each others music is strong enough where we don’t have to discuss much in the way of direction. There was no exception to this regarding his piano and organ parts on these songs. Even though I know Phil will always deliver the goods I am still blown away by his performances time after time.
Here’s one of my favorites featuring Phil on piano and organ called “Never Could Have.”
