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
