Active since: July 1, 2000    Primary Instrument: Band/orchestra

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.

“...a far reaching orchestra clearly capable of handling anything and everything that's put in front of it.” - John Kelman, All About Jazz

“As an absolute highlight in the European Jazz Meeting program I found the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra. The ten-piece band combined sophisticated musical comedy with highly sophisticated arrangements. Lovingly slanted characters, like sprung out of a Fellini movie, celebrating and outrageously funny. A brilliant jazz cabaret, a great sucess!” - Hessische/Niedersächsische Allgemeine

“The European Jazz Meeting began on Saturday afternoon with a fantastic concert by Trondheim Jazz Orchestra. In the jam-packed hall Borgward was the ten-member Norwegian formation that for years has been one of the most innovative jazz ensembles. A multi- voiced, sometimes untamed, sometimes lyrical warm sound between post- bop, from experimental and hypnotic sounds to cool swing.” - Weser Kurier
