Trondheim Jazz Orchestra premieres every year under Moldejazz with exciting new works commissioned from the foremost Norwegian jazz performers and composers, but during this year's festival they will perform two different concerts.
History of Trondheim Jazz Orchestra starts for many with Erlend Skomsvoll brilliant arrangements of Chick Corea's music during Moldejazz 2000. Since then, the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra has had an amazing variety of exciting projects, all unique and with a crew tailored to composers' ideas. Joshua Redman, Marius Neset Christian Wallumrød, Kristoffer Lo and Scrap are just some of the many musicians the orchestra has collaborated with.
The orchestra cooperated with Metheny , the Artist In Residence in Molde Jazz in 2001. This was followed by a Norway tour in 2003. This year they meet again, and a new piece composed by Erik Hegdal and Ole Morten Vågan will be premiered during the concert in Bjørnsonhuset. This will definitely be a highlight!
