Phaze II is awesome.
This CD is wonderful. It is a CD you can let play w/o stopping. I received this CD yesterday in the mail and I can't stop listening. As a result I ordered the 2nd CD Backtalk today. Can't get enough....


Terrific listen
After seeing them live at the 2006 Capital Jazz Fest, I was eager to get this CD, and it has not disappointed. It has been in heavy rotation since I bought it, and I look forward to getting their second CD.

OPTIONS is one of the best jazz cd I have listen to. Phaze II style is unique with a blend of jazz, r&b, and salsa. It's a must to purchase. Great job PHAZE II.

Loved your set when you filled in for Kem on 4 Jun 2006
I saw your set when you filled in for Kem and you guys ripped it up. You did an awsesome rendition of the Stylistics cut People Make the World Go Round. Did you guys make a track of that? I bought his CD hoping it was on it but it wasn't. The CD was great though and I'll buy your second one too, but I really want a copy of that cut you guys did that Sunday night.


Great Jazz Band
I heard Phaze II for the first time in August 2006 a Wedding in Manassas, VA. They are GREAT, the best jazz and R&B that I've heard live in a long time. I keep checking the website to see when they will be performing in Northern Virginia Area

The Next Big Thing
This is a great CD that you can't stop listening to. I heard these guys live in DC at Takoma Station and invited them to play at Black Expo. They turned the joint out! I look forward to any new music from them in the future. Thanks Steve for getting in touch with me and inviting me to hear your group. First class all the way!


Quick service and very economical. Thanks
I saw Phaze II at the Capital Jazz Festival 2006. They were awesome. I did not want to leave their set to see the other well known artists. It is great to have local talent that are great representation of the Washington, D.C. area. I wish them all the luck.

I Can't wait for the next album.
I personally enjoyed this cd. My man "Egg" blessed me with cd at my cousin's Eddie's wedding. I have had it in rotation since. I can't wait for the next cd to come out. I will be ready to purchase it. I hope you guys have dates planned for 2k3. I would love to see a live performance.

Peace John A...

Gail Jhonson

Peace & Blessings!

I enjoyed the 1st CD Options but I recently obtain the 2nd CD, "Back Talk", which is the best. To me the last CD, reflects growth and maturity. I see the group raising the bar!!
