We gave it a B+

Philip Bent, a 28-year-old flutist from London, uses jazz as a base while sampling hip-hop, pop, and R&B. His talent doesn’t get lost in The Pressure, though. While a rousing remake of ”The World Is a Ghetto” and ”One Man and His Music,” an Anita Bakeresque ballad, stand out, his is an ambitious, happenin’ debut overall. B+
