Norwegian tenor and soprano player Neset has produced a stonking debut demonstrating a fully formed musical personality over 11 original compositions.

It sounds as if he can do anything: super-fast playing in the broken-beat rhythms of Steve Coleman; sensitive ballads in a keening Northern wail, plus avant-garde solo interludes. The band of Django Bates on keyboards, Jasper Hoiby on bass and drummer Anton Eger match Neset every step of the way.
