MARIUS NESET/SVANTE HENRYSON/LIONEL LOUEKE - extra show
First meeting! Marius Neset (sax), Svante Henryson (cello) & Lionel Loueke (guitar) will meet for the first time on stage in «Gamle Kongsberg Kino». What makes this concert even more special is that you get to join them on stage in a small and intimate 360° theatre.
Marius Neset, who was granted Kongsberg Jazzfestival’s own musical award this year, will do three unique concerts at the festival in 2018. In a short period of time the saxophone player has gained an international breakthrough with his own quintet as well as with large scale collaborative projects with ensembles such as Trondheim Jazz Orchestra.
Svante Henryson is mastering both the cello and the bass, and his work scales from jazz and classical music to hard rock. He has toured with names such as Elvis Costello, Jon Balke and Anne Sofie von Otter.
Lionel Loueke is from Benin in West-Africa. For more than a decade he played in Herbie Hancock’s quartet. He has recorded several solo albums at Blue Note Records and he has played with names such as Wayne Shorter, Sting, Angelique Kidjo, Dave Holland, Jack DeJohnette, Charlie Haden and more.
