Team Hegdal is Eirik Hegdal's compositional laboratory in small format. Hegdal is well known for his work with the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, where he served as artistic director from 2002-2016. Among the projects is the jazz orchestra featuring the great saxophonist Joshua Redman, playing compositions by Hegdal.
In Team Hegdal, each and every musician gets bigger playroom, and the music is even more transparent.
Team Hegdal has released four albums (2018). They won a Norwegian grammy for their recording "Vol 3" in 2016.
