Marius is a Norwegian saxophonist and composer who has toured extensively throughout Europe and won several notable music prizes, including the prestigious JazZtipendiat Prize.
“Marius Neset combines Brecker's power and Jan Garbarek's tonal delicacy … (he) is on his way to being one of the biggest new draws on the circuit.” ~ John Fordham, The Guardian
“He makes his instrument dance like a gazelle and soar like an eagle, and he's an ingenious composer too.” ~ Ivan Hewitt, The Daily Telegraph
“Marius is an astonishing saxophonist … Performing in a band with Marius is like being on a bobsleigh team; his energy, speed of reflex, and superb technique enable him to keep changing up a gear, way beyond what one imagines humanly possible.” ~ Django Bates
