Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, Eirik Hegdal & Joshua Redman

Elite Orchestra meets elite saxophonist at the Kongsberg Jazzfestival: Trondheim Jazz Orchestra and Joshua Redman!

When the great American tenor player Joshua Redman recorded, for the very first time, Norwegian music with Norwegian musicians, it took place in a creative interaction with the well renowned Trondheim Jazz Orchestra. The project has its roots from Redman’s guest appearance on Hegdal’s commissioned piece “Space is still the place” for Molde International Jazz Festival 2006. This collaboration was so successful, that the group reformed, toured and recorded the piece in 2008. In 2011 and 2013 the ensemble toured Europe with great success. In 2017 this unique collaboration will appear at the Kongsberg Jazzfestival, after great demand from the jazz listeners.

“A masterpiece” (6/6) – Tor Hammerø, Side 3
“Triads and more is simply great music” (6/6) – Terje Mosnes, Dagbladet
“The stunning Eroiki features some of Redman’s most beautiful tenor playing to date” (4/5) – Yoshi Kato, Downbeat
“Triads and More is a vivid, stylistically unbound hour of music by one of Norway’s bright compositional lights and performers, and a far-reaching orchestra, clearly capable of handling anything and everything that’s put in front of it.” – John Kelman, All About Jazz
