Marius Neset

In April 2011 Marius Neset released Golden Xplosion, an album that led to the saxophonist and composer becoming one of the most talked about newcomers on the European jazz scene in recent years. At just 25 years old, he was described by Terje Mosnes in Norway’s Dagbladet as “the most talented Norwegian saxophonist since Jan Garbarek in the 1960s”, but it is the maturity in both his writing and playing, combined with the extraordinary energy and commitment he puts into every performance which really impresses.

Released on the British label Edition Records, and featuring a stellar lineup of Django Bates (keyboards), Jasper Høiby (bass) and Anton Eger (drums), Golden Xplosion won 5-star reviews from the Guardian, Telegraph and Irish Times in addition to rave reviews in Danish Magazine, Jazz Special and Norway’s Jazznytt, praising both the virtuosity and musicianship of the compositions and performance.
