‘That Neame is one of the most interesting jazz pianists of his generation may be clear. That he is getting better and better is too. The 10 years of almost constant being on the road with bands has given him a prominent role in the front line of British jazz.’ Written in Jazz
An innately gifted pianist, composer and bandleader, Ivo Neame (Phronesis, Marius Neset Quintet) has demonstrated himself over the last decade as a musician of world-class quality with an overriding spirit of adventure and exploration. An original and a risk-taker.
With Moksha, he returned to Edition Records with an album that will define a new era for him in his already illustrious career. With a new band, a greater use of electronic keyboards and an edgier rhythmical groove and band interplay, Neame has produced his most remarkable and boldest musical statement to date.
Ivo Neame is an award-winning pianist and composer. In addition to leading his own bands, he is a vital cog in several of European jazz’s most forward-looking groups including Phronesis and the Marius Neset Quintet. He regularly performs at jazz festivals worldwide, collaborating with ensembles as diverse as the Frankfurt Radio Big Band and the London Sinfonietta. He is a regular member of Phronesis (Best Jazz Ensemble, 2017 Parliamentary Jazz Awards) and the Julian Arguelles Quartet.
