“The brilliant bass player, Jasper Høiby, outstanding music”

“Høiby fashions his pieces so the lines between freedom and form are beautifully blurred, the music flows as a tumultuous organic whole –
everything belongs, nothing is forced.”

“The intricate, information-dense linear arrangements and tightly plotted rhythm tracks that characterised Phronesis are here relaxed so that the music is allowed to flow and breathe.” – Editors Choice, JAZZWISE ****
“3 Elements” offers an uncompromising and robust sound palette, which recalls the groove of Phronesis while being distinguished by the richness of the charismatic and unique sound of Høiby’s bass.

“3Elements” offers a compelling, uncompromising, and robust sonic palette reminiscent of the groove-centric Phronesis, whilst being enriched by Høiby’s unmistakably charismatic bass sound.
