Phronesis are widely recognised as the finest jazz piano trio in Europe. Members Jasper Høiby, Anton Eger and Ivo Neame are all Edition recording artists, and Phronesis remain central to the Edition label.
With the critically acclaimed release of their sixth album ‘Parallax’ in 2016 (recorded at Abbey Road studios) and a reputation for spell-binding, roller-coaster live performances, twice MOBO-nominated Anglo-Scandinavian trio Phronesis have captured the hearts and minds of audiences worldwide.
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. These arrangements have been performed in the UK, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands including at North Sea Jazz Festival 2017.
In October 2017 Phronesis won the ‘Jazz Ensemble of the Year’ award at the UK’s Parliamentary Jazz Awards.
