Band on the Wall presents the critically acclaimed Norwegian saxophonist Marius Neset, live at The Wardrobe, Leeds.

“As powerful, skilful and idiomatically varied on stage as he is on record, Neset is a resounding talent.” John Fordham, The Guardian

Protégé of lauded former Loose Tubes keys man Django Bates, Neset combines the ferocious vertical chops of the late Michael Brecker with a haunting Nordic lyricism to stunning effect. Performing music from his critically acclaimed solo album Golden XPlosion (Edition Records), Neset’s superb band features powerful Phronesis bass/drum team Jasper Hoiby and Anton Eger plus keyboardist Ivo Neame. Come enjoy what promises to be a superlative concert by one of the most talented outfits currently performing on the European circuit.
