Jasper Høiby's Fellow Creatures
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".
The band consists of - Jasper Høiby (bass) Mark Lockheart (saxes), Laura Jurd (trumpet and flugel), Will Barry (piano) and Jon Scott (drums and percussion).
“I can only describe it as joyous. It’s a joyous album..“

“..rhythm-twisting struts are played with the breeziness of a carefree street band.”

“Strong themes and clear narratives balance optimism and doubt, reflecting the albums inspiration – the radical ecology of Naomi Kleins book This Changes Everything.”
