‘WALKING DARK’ (Edition Records 2012)

"With Walking Dark, Høiby, Neame and Eger might soon be very big names indeed." BBC MUSIC

“Walking Dark confirms their position as one of the great piano trios of our time. “ THE ARTS DESK

“the secret of Phronesis is it stands for more than the sum of its parts and this outstanding album has got to be the best example of that to date.” JAZZWISE

“This is arguably the best disc yet from one of the best of the bunch of contemporary bands.” BARRY WITHERDEN, BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE *****

“Høiby is one of the most arresting bassists on the contemporary scene, his sound at once lithe and sonorous, his solos compulsively listenable, and with the unshowy but fluent piano of Neame and the cracklingly energetic drumming of Eger driving the band, Walking Dark is Phronesis's most accomplished album to date.” CHRIS PARKER (LONDONJAZZBLOG)

boots” BASS GUITAR MAGAZINE
