The album sees all three players reaching further than ever before, creating music that by turns drives with urban energy and resonates with mountainous space and sheer delightful abstraction.
‘The secret of Phronesis is it stands for more than the sum of its parts and this outstanding album has got to be the best example of that to date’. JAZZWISE
‘Høiby is one of the most arresting bassists on the contemporary scene, his sound at once lithe and sonorous, his solos compulsively listenable, and with the unshowy but fluent piano of Neame and the cracklingly energetic drumming of Eger driving the band, Walking Dark is Phronesis’s most accomplished album to date’. LONDON JAZZ BLOG
‘Perhaps it’s the emotional volatility that ultimately makes Phronesis so different and appealing. Whatever, the music comes up as fresh as paint’. MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS
