In this in­ter­view, Steve Flack goes head to head with much-ac­com­plished Aus­tralian jazz and rock mu­si­cian Phil Stack.

Stack is the found­ing bass gui­tarist of the pop-rock band Thirsty Merc, which formed in 2002 and has re­leased four ac­claimed stu­dio al­bums. He is also the reg­u­lar dou­ble bass­man for jazz mu­si­cian James Mor­ri­son, and is the leader of the jazz rock ensem­ble Phil Stack Trio.

In No­vem­ber 2008, Phil was awarded first place in the Na­tional Jazz Awards held at the Mel­bourne Jazz Fes­ti­val.

His records have also won Stack praise from in­dus­try stal­warts and crit­ics alike. In 2005, Thirsty Merc were nom­i­nated for a whop­ping four ARIA Awards; three years later, their smash hit “20 Good Rea­sons” was nom­i­nated for Song Of The Year.
