Megalodon Collective is said to be one of the most outstanding jazz-orchestras to come out of the norwegian/swedish jazz scene. The collective was announced "young jazz musicians of the year" during Molde Jazz Festival 2016 and represented norway on Umeå Jazz Festival, their debut album was nominated for best jazz album of 2015 at the norwegian grammys (as some of the youngest artists to ever be nominated). The septet released their debut album this september and has toured Norway, Finland, Brussels, Italy, Sweden, Germany and Holland. Their second album ‘ANIMALS’ is just released on Jazzland Records!


“… Norway's potent Megalodon Collective making the biggest splash by way of a bulky two-drummer rhythm section and rhapsodic Ra-like horns.”
Kevin Le Gendre, Jazzwise Magazine, Umeå Jazz Festival 2016

“.. With Megalodon Collective comes yet another confirmation that we are dealing with a "new" gang of fearless and impetuous musicians who are already on a sky-high level.”
Tor Hammerø

“While there was a great deal of international flair at this festival, the talent displayed by Norwegian artists was certainly substantial… The free-yet-focused Megalodon Collective—consisting of two drummers, three reedists, electric guitar and bass—channeled Sun Ra at times, Claude Thornhill the next”
John Ephland, Downbeat Magazine, Oslo Jazz Festival 2016

“Megalodon Collective truely deserves their norwegian grammy nomination.”
Terje Mosnes, jazzinorge.no

“Megalodon Collective is simply a brilliant collective, as with "Megalodon" has made a brilliant debut album! They will play at Oslo Jazz Festival on August 16, so if you are in town, get your tickets. Because these guys must be amazing live!”
Jan Granlie, salt-peanuts.eu

“.. Interweaving melodies and ramping background figures slowly but surely pushes the soloists to climactic heights.”
Tom Greenland, New York Jazz Record

“A band that can leave you breathless”
Johan Hauknes, salt-peanuts.eu

“.. It goes without saying that there’s alot of, ahem, sound. But no worries, because the collective is both responsive and dynamic.”
Jazznytt, Vinter 2015, debut album
