marius neset 7

New album "Lion"

"Marius Neset combines Brecker’s power and Jan Garbarek’s tonal delicacy, but has a vision that makes all 11 originals on this sensational album feel indispensable, and indispensably connected to each other. Neset is on his way to being one of the biggest new draws on the circuit”. John Fordham, GUARDIAN (UK)

“This disc is stuffed with elaborate, feature-rich songs, all manner of textures and styles joyously jostling, and feats of virtuosity and steamroller-like energy”. Peter Hum, Ottawa Citizen (CANADA)

“… saxophonist Marius Neset is a marvel. He makes his instrument dance like a gazelle and soar like an eagle, and he’s an ingenious composer too”. Ivan Hewitt, TELEGRAPH (UK)

“Mark the name. …, this Norwegian saxophonist will surely be a major figure on the European jazz scene if this astonishing – and astonishingly personal – album is any indication”. Ray Comiskey, IRISH TIMES (IRELAND)

“Overwhelming - simply overwhelming! I'm totally blown away. Neset has gotten control of his ideas and I'm not afraid to say that he with "Golden Xplosion" has created a masterpiece. Keep an eye on Marius Neset: he will become one of the biggest”. Niels Christensen, JAZZ SPECIAL (DENMARK)

“A highly promising album from a musician with awesome technical abilities plus the ambition as a composer to make them count. One senses that Neset is something of a star in the making”. The Jazz Mann (UK)

“the most talented Norwegian saxophonist since Jan Garbarek in the 1960s” DAGBLADET (NORWAY)

“On Golden Xplosion Marius Neset seriously marks himself as a saxophonist and composer of international class” JAZZ SPECIAL (DENMARK)

“The Wizard from Os … Neset is a composer that writes complex music, which the musicians played really great” Jan Granlie, Jazznytt (NORWAY)
