Late in the 1930s Phillips played in the United States on radio and freelance in clubs.

He served in the Royal Air Force during World War II, then put together his own quartet in 1946 and wrote several pieces for the BBC Symphony Orchestra. He led a Dixieland jazz band of his own formation from 1949, and his sidemen included George Shearing, Colin Bailey, Tommy Whittle, and Kenny Ball. Phillips's first recordings under his own name were made in 1928, and he continued to record as a leader into the 1970s. Read more on Last.fm.
