"An exciting journey of truly volcanic energy and intensity," (BBC)

Marius Neset is not only one of the best saxophonists of our time but also one of the most accomplished composers in jazz and far beyond. "Geyser", commissioned for the BBC Proms, premiered at London's Royal Albert Hall and performed by Marius Neset’s outstanding band and the "London Sinfonietta" is the highlight of a unique artistic journey.

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."
