Elite orchestra meets elite saxophonist at Kongsberg Jazz Festival: Trondheim Jazz Orchestra and Joshua Redman!

The Trondheim Jazz Orchestra is a musical full-rigger - not only in the Norwegian music scene, but also to a large extent internationally. With changing line-ups, which are adapted to the individual projects, the band has repeatedly impressed with superb concerts and critically acclaimed records. Typical of the orchestra is that they have collaborative projects with major music personalities, such as Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, Christian Wallumrød, Kristoffer Lo and many more.

The band has had a particularly successful collaboration under the leadership of Eirik Hegdal with the American star saxophonist Joshua Redman as a soloist. Eirik Hegdal is responsible for most of the compositions, and the unique collaboration was documented on the record in 2011 Triads and More

The constellation Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, Eirik Hegdal and Joshua Redman first played together in 2006 and have toured Europe together on a few occasions since then. There has been a unanimous demand from multitudes of jazz listeners to hear this particularly vigorous combination again. We are happy to announce that the requirement is fulfilled at the Kongsberg Jazz Festival 2017!
