My graduation concert at Nasjonal Jazzscene Victoria, Oslo. 20th of June at 22:15 hrs.

Hayden Powell – trumpet
Mats Eiliertsen – bass
Per Oddvar Johansen – drums

I’ve been taking a master’s degree at the Norwegian Academy of Music and am now ready to take my final exam. Two of my favourite musicians, Mats Eilertsen and Per Oddvar Johansen, will be joining me for the concert!

During my studies I have done projects with, among others, Erlend Skomsvoll, Morten Qvenild, and Tore Brunborg. This has resulted in a cd with Magic Pocket & Morten Qvenild, a series of concerts with other groups and a solo concert in Tøyen Church with Per Oddvar Johansen as my supervisor. The music from this solo concert will form the basis for what we will be performing at the exam.

Hope to see you there!


And by the way.. I’ll be playing at Victoria again on September 16th, when I’ll be releasing my debut album, The Attic. It features Eyolf Dale, Jo Skaansar, Jaasper Van Hulten, Erik Johannessen and Tore Brunborg, and it’s gonna be great!!
