Julian Joseph with the latest jazz news and releases from the UK's vibrant jazz scene. Plus an interview with Jasper Hoiby and Ivo Neame from Phronesis profiling their latest album ' Alive'. Phronesis are led by Danish double-bassist Jasper Hoiby and also feature British pianist Ivo Neame (Loop Collective) and American drummer Mark Guiliana (Avishai Cohen/ Meshell Ndegeocello). Their latest recording 'Alive' was recorded over two nights at London's Forge Arts Venue and captures the trio at the height of their powers. In Hoiby's words ' This is what I love about playing live, there's a real edge and freshness that exites me'. The performance on the 'Alive' succesfully documents the telepathic empathy between the musicians and their collective desire to take music in new directions. This spirit of adventure prompted Jazzwise Editor Jon Newey to describe them in live performance as 'the most exciting and imaginative jazz trio since EST'. Join Julian Joseph as Jasper and Ivo navigate through selections from 'Alive' and provide insights into their approach to music making.
