Band On The Wall Playlist – June 2016

My monthly round up of new jazz releases and a focus on the key jazz gigs at the Band On The Wall, Manchester. June sees a gig by the highly rated jazz trio Phronesis

Scandinavian/British jazz trio Phronesis have the ability to excite, inspire and move people in a way that few bands are able to do. Formed in 2005 by Danish double- bass player Jasper Høiby, their charismatic live performances have captured the hearts and minds of audiences worldwide and prompted Jon Newey (Editor of Jazzwise Magazine) to describe them as “the most exciting and imaginative piano trio since EST”.

“One of the most exciting bands on the planet today!” (Jazzwise)
