AS A LEADER

Ben Phillips’ Scorpio Moon

With Scorpio Moon, trumpeter and composer Ben Phillips seeks to expand his sonic possibilities by adding a range of electronic and synth sounds into his palette. The trio, which consists of Lucas Gillan on drums and Jakob Heinemann on bass, plays everything from Ben’s moody and thoughtful original compositions, to pop tunes and TV show theme songs.
