Not often do you find a release of a jazz recording made at the Proms - this hot spring themed work features the titanic Norwegian saxophonist Marius Neset with pianist Ivo Neame, vibist Jim Hart, bassist Conor Chaplin, drummer Anton Eger and the London Sinfonietta conducted by Geoffrey Paterson was commissioned by Radio 3 and performed at the Proms in September last year. Full of grandeur and commitment Part 2 'On Fire' certainly grabbed us a good deal and here Neset displays just what a tonally versatile player he is - the piece full of vigour and personality. Neame delivers a high point in his solo at the beginning of 'Out of Sight' joined later tastefully by Hart. Neset is a major artist - his own generation's Jan Garbarek perhaps - and here in his writing beyond sheer instrumentalism also shows considerable scope and imagination in his compositional ideas. The approach manages to blend jazz and classical disciplines for long stretches although some tracks ('Lava' particularly) shaped by the Sinfonietta seem more classical than jazz. Another milestone in the remarkable career of Neset it's clear. Out today. Marius Neset photo: ACT.
