Philip Catherine (born October 27, 1942) is a Belgian jazz guitarist. He was born in London from English mother and Belgian father. He began playing in the 60's with Lou Bennett then with Dexter Gordon and St├ęphane Grappelli. He was then a member of Jean-Luc Ponty quintet, right after he recorded his first album (Stream, produced by Frenchman Sacha Distel) in 1971. A year later, he met John Scofield, Ran Blake, George Benson and more musicians in Boston.

He also played with Charlie Mingus (who named him Young Django) and Chet Baker. He is now considered as the grandfather of Belgian jazz as he continues to play on the now very active Belgian jazz scene. He won the first Belgian Golden Django (in 1995) as best French-speaking artist. Read more about Philip Catherine on Last.fm.
