"Marius Neset is one of the new great tenor players of our time in the tradition of Michael Brecker and Jan Garbarek" (Jazzwise). After his venture into a larger band format on his ACT debut "Lion" with the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, Neset returns to a more compact quintet (with guests) for "Pinball." Neset and his fellow musicians present a dazzling kaleidoscope of expressions and influences. At the same time, Neset sounds as mature, soulful, and melodic as ever before. "Pinball" is likely to mark the next big leap in a young and impressive career.

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."
