Welcome to “A Nordic Sound”…… yes, we changed our name…. 😉
“9th Note Jazz Orchestra” was originally conceived as “A Nordic Sound” by musician colleagues who hail from Scandinavia and happen to reside in Connecticut. Having met, the idea to create a Jazz orchestra utilizing local professional Jazz musicians was born. A Nordic Sound is directed by Jens Wendelboe, an internationally acclaimed composer, arranger and trombonist who has performed or collaborated with musical icons such as Donna Summer, Aretha Franklin to jazz greats Phil Woods and Bill Watrous. Jens has assembled an equally accomplished group of musicians creating an elite ensemble performing all original compositions and arrangements. A Nordic Sound covers a variety of musical genres to include contemporary jazz, fusion and a little R&B. This groups philosophy is to present a musical repertoire which exemplifies creative original composition performed by the highest level of musicianship the Tri-State area has to offer.
