About Marius Neset

Jazz saxophonist Marius Neset is also a composer whose music incorporates influences from contemporary classical styles, progressive rock, and other genres. He has been hailed as a successor to progressive jazz players like Michael Brecker and Jan Garbarek and even to the so-called Third Stream jazz-classical fusion composers of the 1960s. Neset's albums often had classical influences. Lion (2014) featured the 13-member Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, while Viaduct (2019) included Neset's jazz band and the London Sinfonietta. Neset returned in 2022 with the album Manmade, a full-fledged classical saxophone concerto on the theme of climate change on which he was backed by the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of conductor Edward Gardner.
