Commissioned concert with Bobo Stenson

Last year Jan Ole Otnæs called me and told me that Victoria (National Jazzscene in Oslo) wanted to comission a concert from me. I could pick the musicians to participate and I would write whatever music I wanted, and Victoria would book a tour and handle everything else. The first musician I thought about was pianist Bobo Stenson, because it had been a long time dream to be able to play with him. I also asked Laura Jurd on trumpet, Mats Eilertsen on bass and Hans Hulbækmo on drums to join me and they all accepted. This last year I have written music and prepared for this moment, and now it is soon happening. In a couple of weeks we will all meet up in Oslo, and rehearse a couple of days before we go on a small tour in Norway. It is pretty exciting, at the point of nervewrecking, but I am looking extremely forward to meeting the others and start to play together.

Here is the tour plan:

Sept 21: Eidsvoll Jazzklubb
Sept 22: Victoria National Jazzscene, Oslo
Sept 23: Arena, Moss
Sept 24: Bodø Jazzklubb

Bobo and me when I went to see him play at Kongsberg Jazzfestival in july this summer.
