CHICK AND THE TRONDHEIM JAZZ ORCHESTRA
Norwegian jazz musician Erlend Skomsvoll’s arrangement of jazz legend Chick Corea’s scores was performed during the Molde Jazz Festival in 2000 by Corea and the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra. The adaptations were met with much enthusiasm by Corea himself, the musicians in the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, the press, and the audience. A selection of scores from the concert has been released on CD, and the Corea writes in the liner notes that it was “complete creative fun from beginning to end”. All musicians involved in the project are former or current students from the Department of Music at NTNU.
