"Without putting too fine a shout on it, BUY THIS CD. Anyone at ALL interested in the smoothness of Latin, or whole notes that ARE held, or Broadway - this is for YOU."

, Latin American Rhythm Magazine

"It would be difficult to find a fault in this carefully crafted CD. For the men this is one to buy for your lady, but don`t be surprised if you like it as well!"

, Jazz Now

Philip’s debut CD, THE BEAT OF MY HEART combines the passionate fire of a classic Latin sound with the soaring eloquence of a great jazz standard from a gifted vocalist. It features an extraordinary group of some of the most gifted and prominent musicians on the contemporary Latin-Jazz scene including Raul Agraz (trumpets), Bobby Allende (percussion), Chembo Corniel (congas), Bobby Franceschini (sax), Brian Lynch and Ricardo Pons (bari sax & flute) Ruben Rodriguez (bass) and Spanish Harlem Orchestra’s Oscar Hernandez (piano/musical director) with award-winning arrangers Ray Santos (Grammy for Linda Ronstadt's Frenesi) and Marty Sheller (Grammy for Mongo Santamaria's Amanecer). The reviews have been raves!

"Philip Hernandez gives one of the theatre season's best performances. He has the most beautiful light tenor I've heard since Mandy Patinkin in Sunday in the Park with George."

, Dallas Times Herald

"Philip Hernandez is a first-rate Singer."

, The New York Post

"Philip Hernandez has double-barreled charisma all his own
and the show is richer because of him."
