"What Neset does on the saxophone is nothing less than a step into a new dimension of this instrument" (Süddeutsche Zeitung). 
"Lion" is his ACT debut, and, as could hardly be expected otherwise, Neset has not opted for a probing or introductory album, but for a real bang for the buck. Together with the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, not only a new saxophone lion takes the plunge, but also one who can make an orchestra sound like few others.
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."
