Details


Featuring both young and seasoned lights of the London jazz scene, this band is the first new venture for Jasper's own music since his formation of Phronesis in 2005. The music combines a deep sense of groove and an optimistic, driving energy with contrapuntal rhythms and strong lyricism, leading JAZZWISE to describe the band as "masters of evolving energy". This landmark album from Jasper Høiby builds on the meteoric rise and continuing critical success of his glowing international career as one of the most creative, innovative and powerful performers, composers and bandleaders of his generation in Europe. He describes part of his motivation in writing this music as : “The titles and to some extent the writing are inspired by a brilliant book by Canadian author Naomi Klein called, ‘This Changes Everything’. The book talks about what we have to do to make sure that we don’t devour this beautiful planet, along with all its natural resources. It discusses how we can seize this environmental crisis and transform our failed economic system to build something radically better for everyone.”
“. . .. rhythm-twisting struts are played with the breeziness of a carefree street band.” JOHN FORDHAM, GUARDIAN -UK

Jasper Høiby - double bass
Mark Lockheart - saxes
Laura Jurd - trumpet & flugel
Will Barry - piano
