A few days ago we had another rehearsal with Trondheim Jazz Orchestra in Oslo. A great experience to play with such wonderful musicians! We had written lots of new music to the orchestra, and we´re very happy with the outcome.. Looking forward to Molde Jazz festival this summer!
These days we´re rehearsing with the magnificent band, Trondheim Jazz Orchestra! We´re writing brand new music for a commission at the Molde Jazz festival in 2013. Monday the 15th of July, it all comes to life..

Here´s some pictures from our two-day rehearsal at Dokkhuset in Trondheim.
Quote from the Malaysian newspaper The Star
The cutting edge of European jazz will also be present with Norwegian jazz duo Albatrosh – Eyolf Dale (piano) and André Roligheten (saxophone). In terms of credentials, Albatrosh is a product of the influential Rune Grammofon imprint, which already signifies free-flow improvisation and dynamic musical interplay (with added electronics).
Currently breaking new ground in Britain and United States, the Albatrosh story has been going from strength to strength. Back in its homeland, the duo’s past two albums Mystery Orchestra With Grenager & Tafjord (2010) and Yonkers (2011) have lodged themselves in the upper reaches of the annual best Norwegian jazz record charts.
Looking forward to play at The Penang Island Jazz festival in November/December!

Here´s some impressions from Poland so far.
