Trondheim Jazz Orchestra is one of the most important and creative jazz ensembles in Norway. During the course of the last ten years, the orchestra has had a great number of exciting projects with norwegian and international jazz profiles such as Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, Joshua Redman, Erlend Skomsvoll and Eirik Hegdal.
Hayden has taken part in many of the projects, and has even contributed as a composer in Magic Pocket’s project.

- Trondheim Jazz Orchestra and Magic Pocket on tour
Last week, I did three gigs with Trondheim Jazz Orchestra and Magic Pocket to promote our new album “Kinetic Music“. We played to enthusiastic audiences in Trondheim, Mo i Rana and Tromsø and I really had a good time performing this music again (we haven’t played this concert since it’s premiere at Moldejazz 2010). The band consist of 11 wind instrumentalists, three drummers , a vocalist and the Kinetic Sculptures of Atle Selnes Nielsen. We have a lot of unusual instruments, like a tubax (subcontrabass saxophone), bass saxophone, cimbasso (contrabass valve trombone) and a contra-alto clarinet. So it’s a dream band for a someone like me who’s always looking for new sounds! Actually, this was my first visit to Tromsø and I was lucky to get a great view of Ishavskatedralen from my hotel window. I’m going back in February to play with my trio so looking forward to that.
- Trondheim Jazz Orchestra & Øyvind Brække – new album!
Trondheim Jazz Orchestra & Øyvind Brække – Migrations MNJ RECORDS/MNJCD012 Trombone player and composer Øyvind Brække wrote the music for this album, which in my ears is one of the most interesting albums from Trondheim Jazz Orchestra. It was recorded in Rainbow Studios in 2010, with Erlend Skomsvoll as conductor /producer. I remember the music as being intricate and hard to play, but the result is very rewarding. The album is avaliable on Musikkonline here
