Bassist, composer and bandleader Jasper Høiby has risen over the last 10 years as one of the most prolific and creative musicians of his generation on the vibrant European scene. As the driving energy and creative spirit behind Phronesis, the acclaimed piano trio with Anton Eger and Ivo Neame, Jasper is an inspiration to his collaborators and a draw of bold, rhythmically charged grooves, an exuberant energy, and infectious spirit blended with unique, and occasionally dry sense of humour.
Fellow Creatures was released to vast international critical acclaim and was hailed as a landmark album for Jasper, building on his continuing critical success as one of the most creative, innovative and powerful performers, composers and bandleaders of his generation in Europe.
Described by Jamie Cullum as ‘a joyous album’ and by London Jazz as “..fusing the infectious grooves of a Phronesis rhythm section with the off-kilter hooks of Polar Bear”, Fellow Creatures combines a deep sense of groove and impelling energy with contrapuntal rhythms and strong lyricism.
