JM Jazz World Orchestra

JM Jazz World Orchestra

Jeunesses Musicales International brings together young jazzmusicians from all over the world, and in 2014 the project was hosted in Norway.

Under the musical leadership of Erlend Skomsvoll, 17 young jazz musicians formed the 2014 orchestra. Skomsvoll is a Norwegian jazz musician, band leader, composer, producer and arranger. He is internationally acclaimed for his big band collaborations with Chick Corea, Pat Metheny and many others. The musicians experienced one week of good jazzy fun together with top young international jazz musicians before performing at the Kongsberg Jazz Festival which this year headlined stars like Chick Corea, Joshua Redman and Dave Holland.

In the end the orchestra played at the Young Talent stage at Kongsberg Jazzfestival, and you can see a great captive of what the camp consisted in this video:
