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.
