Philip Catherine

Real Name:
Philip Catherine
Profile:
Belgian jazz guitarist.
Born October 27, 1942 in London, England from an English mother and a Belgian father

Coming from a musical family (his grandfather was first violin with the London Symphony Orchestra), he developed a musical ear from an early age. He took up the guitar after having heard George Brassens, and then started listening to all the great jazzmen of the period. Very soon he had the opportunity to meet some of them, and often play with them when they were performing in Belgium where his family had moved to by then.

Philip Catherine has been on the forefront of the European jazz scene since the sixties. He has worked with great artists like Lou Bennett, Billy Brooks, Edgar Bateman, John Lee, Gerry Brown, Jean Luc Ponty, Larry Coryell, Alphonse Mouzon, Charlie Mariano, Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen, Kenny Drew, Dexter Gordon, Toots Thielemans, Stéphane Grappelli, Charles Mingus, Chet Baker, Tom Harrell, the rock group Focus. His unique approach and sound, his dedication to music and, above all, the highly emotional lyricism of expression in his playing and in his music, have been important and influential.

It appears that Philip Catherine recorded an album with George Mraz (bass) and serge Delaitre (piano) in 1993. This album was called "Emotionnaly" and was edited by a label called OMD. This album has been reissued in 2000 by a French label called label Bleu. Both editions are very difficult to find. Has anybody got a copy of it?I can remember for listening this record once, that it was a marvel of friction, melody, groove and subtlety.
