Summer 2015 news

There are many exciting things on the Phronesis horizon and the honour has befallen me (Ivo) to tell you lucky people.

Most pressing of these is our fourth trip as a band over the Atlantic Ocean to North America. We are fantastically excited about this because our gig at the Montreal Jazz Festival in 2013 was a massive highlight in the history of the band; we have been lucky enough to be invited back to Montreal on the 27th June and to Vancouver Jazz Festival on the 29th June.

We will also be playing at jazz festivals in Leuven, Brecon and Palatia, so I am seriously looking forward to what will be an amazing summer of travelling and playing jazz.

Finally, we are pleased to announce that we will be participating in a special, one-off 10th birthday celebration gig, featuring Phronesis and the Frankfurt Radio Big Band. This will take place at Milton Court, (adjacent to the Barbican Centre) on NOVEMBER 22 during the 2015 London Jazz Festival. It will feature music written by the three of us, arranged for large ensemble by the incomparably talented Julian Argüelles.

Hopefully your curiosity will have been piqued by now, so please check the gigs page for full details!


Ivo, Jasper and Anton
