SAVAGES! GET READY FOR THE TRANSCENDENTAL energy of the TRONDHEIM JAZZ ORCHESTRA! Since 1999, the Norwegian ensemble is operated as a musicians’ pool, so that the orchestra changes as to instrumentation and size from project to project: under the musical direction of the tuba player, multi-instrumentalist and composer KRISTOFFER LO, the 13-piece-ensemble presents a powerful mix of indie pop, avant-garde Jazz, noise and metal in an explosive orchestra context — driven by long-time members such as orchestra leader EIRIK HEGDAL on reeds, alto saxophone heroine METTE RASMUSSEN or the two stunning singers INGRID HELENE HÅVIK and KARI ESKILD HAVENSTRØM. At A L’ARME! Festival Vol. IV, the TJO&LO performs with a contemporary summer line-up featuring Scandinavian shooting stars such as ZU-drummer TOMAS JÄRMYR, the stellar THOMAS JOHANSSON on trumpet or trombonist HENRIK MUNKEBY NØSTRBØ presenting a massive concert performance both lyrical and in-your-face that will hit your body and soul!
