Oslo Jazz Festival is happening 13 - 18 August this year. The organizers have just started to leak some of the artists, and Stian Westerhus and Trondheim Jazz Orchestra are ready! They will perform their commissioned work for the Molde International Jazz Festival in 2011.
I heard them in Molde, and the the concert was more than fantastic!
