The charismatic live performances of European jazz trio Phronesis have captured the hearts and minds of audiences worldwide and prompted Jazzwise magazine to describe them as ‘One of the most exciting bands on the planet today!’
For the second time in 2013, the trio will bring their “rare combination of solid jazz credentials and zeitgeist” (Jazz Journal) to the USA, featuring brand new material to be recorded later this year live at the London Jazz Festival, alongside music from acclaimed 2012 release Walking Dark.
Formed by Danish bass player Jasper Høiby in 2005, with British pianist Ivo Neame and Swedish drummer Anton Eger, Phronesis were nominated in 2010 for ‘Best Jazz Act’ at the MOBO Awards and their third album Alive was voted ‘Jazz Album of the Year’ by both MOJO and Jazzwise magazines. They have since taken their depth-charge bass grooves, lyrical melodies and dramatic interplay to major jazz festivals across the world.
