This years “Jazzstipendiat” prize went Albatrosh, which is André Roligheten on sax and Eyolf Dale on piano (who also plays in my band). The prize includes a commission to write for Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, and to perform this at the Molde Jazz Festival. This year, I’m a part of the line-up and recently took part in the first of several rehearsals leading up to the concert in July. Albatrosh have proven themselves through the release of many fine albums (such as Yonkers on Rune Grammofon) – and this new piece is destined for success, too.
