2020 was very good for Phil Denny with Billboard’s Top 10 Lifted which followed his #1 Feel Alright which featured guitarist David P. Stevens. Tough Get Goin’ is an uptempo song that may reflect the mood of us all after a year we won’t soon forget.
Phil provides his unique sax sound which continues to separate him from the dozens of sax musicians who have become the foundation of the Smooth Jazz format. He's joined on this cut by Ryan Montano on trumpet. The song comes from Denny's November release Urban Troubador. You can hear Phil Denny’s Tough Get Goin’ as you get your day going with Morris Baxter 6am-10a on Atlanta’s Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK.
David C. Linton is Jazz 91.9 WCLK Program Director and host of Serenade To The City, heard Monday-Friday at 10pm.
