Phronesis is: Jasper Høiby, bass; Ivo Neame, piano; Anton Eger, drums
We don't like to brag, but by the time NPR Music endorsed Phronesis as one of "5 Young British Jazz Artists to Watch" back in 2010, we were already watching--and listening. So was the rest of the world: that same year the trio, at the forefront of the European club and festival scene, crossed the pond to wow audiences at the Montreal International Jazz Festival and at New York's legendary Jazz Standard. Meanwhile the UK's influential Jazzwise magazine crowned their third CD, Alive, "Album of the Year." This fall, they're bringing their trademark sound--catchy hooks, complex changes, crackling rhythms, and lithe but tight-knit grooves--to the Monterey Jazz Festival...and to the RJA.
"As the pile of talented piano trios grows ever higher, it takes a very talented and exciting threesome to rise to the top and stay there. Enter Phronesis." --Bruce Lindsay, All About Jazz
