"The most electrifying experience to be had in British jazz" (The Telegraph)
"Young, London-based trio Phronesis have become the standard bearers of the new generation of piano trios inspired by the late Esbjörn Svensson’s influential EST" (The Irish Times)
If any piano trio is primed to inherit the spirit, if not the letter, of the sadly missed EST, this may be it. Emerging from London’s Loop collective, Phronesis is built around Høiby’s compositions, anchored on powerful bass figures that mesh with Neame’s lavish melodic lines and Eger’s accomplished rhythmic architecture to create a band signature that has immediate impact.
Their third album Alive (Edition), was chosen as ‘Jazz Album of the Year’ by Jazzwise and MOJO Magazines. Phronesis have just released their fourth album, Walking Dark (Edition) described as full of "complex, tumbling riffs played with irresistible, headlong momentum and leaping joie de vivre" (BBC)
