Over the last ten years, Ivo Neame has led ensembles that have performed all over Europe at
notable jazz festivals and venues including the North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam, Elb Jazz
Festival in Hamburg and the Bimhuis in Amsterdam. The music is an exploration of contrast
and represents an ongoing quest to house multiple styles and influences under one roof.
This varied mix of sonic landscapes springs from a desire to find emotional resonances with
audiences in as many ways as possible. The styles of the pieces range from serene, calm and
reflective atmospheres to intense, high-octane polyrhythmic grooves. Improvising is at the
heart of the band’s approach to dealing with all these musical structures, thus ensuring the
fresh uniqueness of each performance.
“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.

Ivo Neame is an award-winning pianist and composer. In addition to leading his own bands, he has featured 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.

Ivo discovered music at an early age by playing his parents' piano, albeit with drumsticks. Ivo went on to study at the Royal Academy of Music, and since leaving in 2003 he has performed and recorded with highly esteemed musicians at home and abroad such as Julian Argüelles, Kenny Wheeler and Hermeto Pascoal. His sixth album under his own name “Multiverse” was released on Edition Records in 2020.
