Trondheim Jazz Orchestra

Active since:

Trondheim Jazz Orchestra (TJO) is one of the most important and creative jazz ensembles in Norway. During the course of the last ten years, the orchestra has had a great number of exciting projects with norwegian and international jazz profiles such as Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, Joshua Redman, Erlend Skomsvoll and Eirik Hegdal.

Trondheim Jazz Orchestra celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2010. Among the highlights of the year was the anniversary tour with Chick Corea in Norway and Sweden and the releases of the cd's "stems and cages" by TJO & Kim Myhr and "Triads and More" by TJO & Eirik Hegdal w/ special guest Joshua Redman. In March 2011 TJO made their "European debut" when they toured Germany and Austria with Hegdal and Redman.

Ludovico Granvassu's 2021 Sonic Delights

Read "Ludovico Granvassu's 2021 Sonic Delights" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


Jazz is not a competitive sport and “Best Ofs" are misnomers. End of the year listicles have no bearing on the artistic standing of the albums they include, or on those they neglect, just like a five star review doesn't make the album it graces any better than it already is. But, apparently, humans ...

Anders Lønne Grønseth: Multiverse

Read "Multiverse" reviewed by Chris May


Ever since Jan Garbarek put Norwegian jazz on the map, and especially so after the international success of his rigorously ascetic Officium (ECM) in 1994, the music has acquired a reputation for being not entirely passionless, but emotionally withdrawn. The “Scandinavian sound" which Garbarek championed was conceived in collaboration with ECM label founder Manfred Eicher as ...
