Following their award-winning collaboration on Neset's 2016 album Snowmelt, the electric saxophonist-composer reunites with London Sinfonietta for the opening of Norway's Kongsberg Jazzfestival in his latest commission for the ensemble later this summer.
Championed by mentor and legendary jazz musician Django Bates early in his career, the young saxophonist has gained international success performing and recording with his jazz quintet and in large scale collaborative projects with the likes of Trondheim Jazz Orchestra and London Sinfonietta. Together the unique energy of Neset's live performance and the world-class contemporary classical ensemble create a live experience unlike any other.
