This energetic formation from London gives a futuristic twist to the jazz formula of piano, bass and drums. 'A killer live band' (The Guardian).
Everything and everyone in the universe is interconnected: this is what Phronesis want to communicate with the album We Are All, the current highlight of their oeuvre according to de Volkskrant. The threesome from London became a big name at (jazz) festivals thanks to their exciting ensemble playing, sometimes close-knit and sometimes disorienting, but always in balance.
'Directing, disrupting and bringing everything to a good conclusion. This is what Phronesis, founded by London-based, Danish-born bassist Jasper Hoiby has been doing since day one. The long blonde frontman plays his double bass intensely, as an archer, plucking the strings as if he's shooting arrows. Together with his inventive trio he keeps on evoking new and different atmospheres' (NRC).
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
