Last year jazZtipendiat Espen Berg, has selected a crew for his version of the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra.

TJO's audience know Espen Berg through Marius Neset's Spellemanns award winning Lion- project from 2014. Espen has also made his mark with his piano trio, including finding success in Japan recently. JAZZ JAPAN declared the trio as "the best and most important musical discovery" during 2016!

Espen Berg calls himself a systematic musician, but with his sharp ear, he is also very spontaneous. He will fully combine these two qualities in his new work "MAETRIX." According to Espen, the project will captivate both those who choose to wander off with the melodic surface, and those who would rather delve deeper into the interwoven and detailed undertones. As the title says, metric and the movie Matrix are two of the main inspirations for his work. We can hardly wait to hear them live in Molde!
