Saxophonist Marius Neset delivers what others promise: not only to be the "coming man of Scandinavian jazz" (The Observer), but also - as the only European - to be one of 25 hopefuls for the future of international jazz, as noted by American Downbeat. Since his ACT debut "Lion" with the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra in 2014, Neset has surprised with ever new facets. On "Circle of Chimes", the Norwegian, born in 1986, brings all these experiences together and takes them to a new dimension.

Marius Neset
Few young European jazz musicians in recent years have garnered as much international attention and sheer astonishment from the press and audiences as the Norwegian saxophonist Marius Neset, born in 1986. Those who witnessed his celebrated performances at the Jazzfest Berlin, Jazzwoche Burghausen, JazzBaltica Festival (in a duo with Michael Wollny), and most recently at the Cologne Philharmonie were amazed and remarked, "What Marius Neset does on the saxophone is nothing less than a step into a new dimension of this instrument" (Süddeutsche Zeitung). British media share this conviction. The Telegraph speaks of a "miracle," and The Guardian includes Neset among the current greatest discoveries in jazz, possessing "the power of a Michael Brecker and the sophistication of a Jan Garbarek."
