East Norway Jazz Centre (ENJC) is the regional centre for jazz music in Eastern Norway, geographically covering the counties of Oslo, Akershus, Hedmark, Oppland, Buskerud, Vestfold and Østfold. ENJC include a number of 30 jazz clubs, 60 big bands, 5 festivals and more than 450 professional musicians as active members within the region.
Our main activities are focused on coordinating and initializing jazz activity within the region, as well as working politically to improve general working and operating conditions for our members. Though our main interest lies within stimulating organisers and others to increase the jazz activity on a local scale, ENJC also initialize and arrange own projects (ensembles, concerts, tours), as well as arrange seminars for musicians, big bands and organisers.
Along with the coordinating task goes working with general information on jazz matters towards media, politicians, members of the organisation and others.
The centre’s administration is located in Oslo. Oslo is also the city where our main performing venues for live jazz music are situated, represented by the jazz clubs Victoria Nasjonal jazzscene, Cosmopolite/Belleville, New Orleans Workshop Jazzclub, Oslo jazzforum, Konsertforeningen, Blå, Kampenjazz, Lillesalen konsertserie, Fritt Fall and Dans for voksne – together with Oslo jazz festival and the All Ears Festival for Improviced Music.
