Love Happened To Me
That Aaron Neville was among the first to recognize a young Phillip Manuel’s talent speaks volumes about his abilities. . . Manuel wields pinpoint control over his instrument, and is equally at home scatting to accentuate ‘Only All of Me Will Do,’ or calling on his R&B roots in ‘I Wish.’ Love Happened To Me is a poised, polished, graceful, lovingly rendered showcase for Manuel’s lithe voice. Aaron Neville’s instincts were correct.”Keith Spera, New Orleans Times-Picayune.
