JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2011 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Phronesis at Rochester Internation Jazz Festival

Finally a fresh, clear headed, energetic band, unbound by tradition and just enough off kilter to make it all brand new. Phronesis was riveting at the Lutheran Church. The bass player drove this band with wild abandon egged on by the frenetic drummer who dampened his snare with a towel and then rode on the snare, tom rims and just about anything but his ride cymbal. He sounded more like a tap dancer than a drummer. Piano player was great and the band tore it up. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
