Phronesis

JASPER HØIBY – DOUBLE BASS IVO NEAME – PIANO ANTON EGER - DRUMS 'One of the most exciting bands on the planet!' – Jazzwise With a reputation for spellbinding roller-coaster live performances, Parliamentary Jazz Award winners & twice MOBO- nominated Anglo-Scandinavian trio Phronesis have captured the hearts and minds of audiences worldwide. We Are All, the band’s eighth and newest studio album, (Edition records September 2018) offers plenty of emotional range and musical richness for committed Phronesis fans and new listeners alike. But in its title and scope, it also seeks to focus attention on an important message of togetherness and balance beyond the one they demonstrate on the bandstand. "The musicians’ exceptional technical skills are completely integrated into the fascinating twists and turns of the music, which echoes everything from Liszt to early Soft Machine via bebop while still being unique in its conviction and sheer depth of content." - BBC Music Magazine 5* (2018) Formed in 2005, they have performed widely across Europe and taken their engaging grooves, irresistible rhythmic energy and breathtaking group interplay to concert stages and festivals across the world from Morocco to Brazil and Australia to North America (where the trio returned in the summer of 2017 for a tour of seven jazz festivals.) In 2017 Phronesis released their seventh album, ‘The Behemoth’, recorded in Germany with the hr Frankfurt Radio Big Band - a special commissioned project to celebrate the band's tenth anniversary, for which composer/arranger Julian Argüelles created innovative big band arrangements of the trio’s compositions drawn from their entire back catalogue

Or perhaps Greenham Common holds that distinction. The WWII air force ...
