Gateshead International Jazz Festival – Marius Neset Band Sunday March 25

Marius Neset (tenor and soprano saxophones), Ivo Neame (keyboards), Jasper Hoiby (double bass) & Anton Eger (drums)
Moving from one hall to another, from one performance to another with minutes to spare is, perhaps, not the best way to listen to music but this is often the way of it at major festivals. A triple bill culminating in an intense set from Ambrose Akinmusire left little time for reflection before Marius Neset hit everyone for six. Working with fellow Scandinavians Ivo Neame, Jasper Hoiby and Anton Eger (collectively Phronesis) the packed hall couldn’t quite believe what they were hearing. Imperious technique, lightening fast, this was some show. The ‘backing band’ – in no way a disparaging term in describing three accomplished improvisers – hung in there as Neset’s stunning solos defied belief leaving audience and musician breathless. Words are insufficient, hearing him is a must.
