Trondheim Jazz Orchestra & Ole Morten Vågan
An adventurous big band with sounding names from Scandinavian jazz at Bimhuis. Trondheim Jazz Orchestra is one of Norway's most important big bands, with international allure thanks to projects with world stars such as Chick Corea, Pat Metheny and Joshua Redman.
Ole Morten Vagan
The orchestra features Scandinavian jazz adventurers such as Sofia Jernberg, Signe Emmeluth and Gard Nilssen. The artistic leader since 2017 has been double bassist Ole Morten Vågan, who now presents his own compositions. Ole Morten Vågan has already written two albums for the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, 'Happy Endlings' (2018) and its sequel, 'Plastic Wave' (2021). With 'Plastic Wave' he elaborates bizarrely on the threat of plastic waste to our planet. Despite dark titles such as 'Food Chain Reaction' and 'Critical Mass Distraction', the music is full of slapstick and playful twists, giving the orchestra members a lot of freedom to go their own unpredictable way.
