Allison Philips

An up and coming trumpet player currently residing between New York City and Amsterdam, Allison Philips has been performing steadily since she was 14.

A native of South Orange, New Jersey, Philips began playing the trumpet at the age of 9 after being inspired by a report she wrote on the great Louis Armstrong for African American History Month. Since then she has gone on to perform at many aclaimed venues including, but not limited to Le Poisson Rouge, Iridium, Zinc Bar, 54 Below, The Jazz Standard and NJPAC. In the Spring of 2014, Philips lead a quartet for one week at The Bern Jazz Festival in Switzerland.
