Jasper Hoiby

Jasper Høiby (double bass), Ivo Neame (piano), Anton Eger (drums) Phronesis was created by Copenhagen-born London-based bassist Jasper Høiby in 2005. Phronesis’ debut album Organic Warfare was released in November 2007 on Loop Records. Organic Warfare was in the US iTunes ‘top 100 selling albums’ charts for two months following its release, and has to date, sold more than 12,000 downloads internationally. Their hotly anticipated second album Green Delay was released in June 2009. The album has met with huge critical acclaim from The Guardian, Jazzwise and The Times, with Jazzwise voting it as one of their top ten albums of 2009 and journalist Chris Parker describing it as ‘a compulsively listenable, often downright haunting album’. This success has led to Phronesis signing to impressive new UK jazz label Edition Records, for whom they recorded their third album ‘Alive’ live in March 2010 at the Forge Arts Venue in London

Phil Barnes' Best Releases of 2016

Read "Phil Barnes' Best Releases of 2016" reviewed by Phil Barnes

It was tempting to view the events of 2016 in apocalyptic terms--even leaving politics to one side, the succession of beloved entertainers falling to the Grim Reaper was a salutary reminder of the limits of our own mortality. Some saw this as a sign of something ending, a watershed and not in a good way, but ...

Jasper Høiby: Fellow Creatures

Read "Jasper Høiby: Fellow Creatures" reviewed by Phil Barnes

Creativity is an unpredictable beast, yesterday's inspiration can soon turn stale, evaporating with the morning dew if not carefully cultivated and attended to. That idea that was once so exciting can easily become a well-worn rut, or even a trap, into which the unwary can fall. Bassist Jasper Hoiby, a third of Phronesis, appears to recognise ...

Høiby also ...
