On Neck of the Woods, Neset and Herskedal demonstrate how their original compositions explore influences from classical and folk music, but always with an underlying jazz sensibility – from the soaring and uplifting classical grandeur of ‘Neck of the Woods’ to the simple and sublimely beautiful arrangement of Abdullah Ibrahim’s ‘The Wedding’, Neck of the Woods is an album of extraordinary creativity and energising charm.
‘Tenor sax and tuba make for a surprisingly haunting double act’. – The Observer
