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!
JAZZ IS PHSH uses the melodic structure of the music of Phish to present instrumental jazz-funk-fusion renditions of choice Phish songs.
With the Phish catalogue being rich with unique and complex arrangements, worthy of being celebrated, The Chase Brothers have created an ever expanding “real book” of Phish which allows musicians of all backgrounds to step into the music and breathe new life into the songbook.
The horn driven musical arrangements span from bop jazz vibes to deep funk fusion filled with danceable grooves and strong melodies.
