For a while now Anders Thorén and I have discussed how we can join forces in order to strengthen both of our projects and achieve our common vision; to make jazz music more available and create new platforms for musical dialogue.
Hence, as of this fall I will join Anders in planning and organizing the Sunday BYJAZZ events at the Culture House in Oslo. Every Sunday we invite music and jazz enthusiasts to come through and listen to live music with us at one of Oslo’s coolest venues. Anders will also join me in planning next year’s Building Bridges events. Yes… plural! I promise you we are also planning for a very exiting 2019.
