Norwegian-born saxophonist Marius Neset is a huge talent: described as ‘a tenor master of the future’. At only 25 years old he brings an astonishing breadth of references and maturity to his work. Joe Henderson, Michael Brecker and Wayne Shorter have left their impressions on him, but he has forged his own direction and his playing is utterly compelling: breathtaking musical fireworks executed with a flawless technique, combined with a depth of expression and complemented by a powerful band that propels the music along.
‘Performing in a band with Marius is like being on a bobsleigh team; his energy, speed of reflex, and superb technique enable him to keep changing up a gear, way beyond what one imagines humanly possible.’ Django Bates
