"A call from under the covers" - Release concert at Reykjavík Jazz 2021

The bass player/composer Tómas R. Einarsson will release a new record in August, including compositions he has written to poems of different poets. Einarsson has released various records with singers, but here the focus is on love and melancholy. The music includes many boleros and ballads as well as some more danceable Latin tunes.

For this record Einarsson assembled a stellar cast; the singer Ragnhildur Gísladóttir, one of the most popular Icelandic singers for the last 40 years, guitarist Ómar Guðjónsson, pianist Davíð Þór Jónsson and drummer Magnús Trygvason Elíassen. Ómar, Davíð and Magnús are known as solo artists, members of the ADHD Quartet and performers / composers in the critically acclaimed film Woman at war.

The title of the record, A call from under the covers, is from a poem by Kristín Svava Tómasdóttir (b. 1985).

Double Trouble

Two unusual trios performing at the same time, taking turns and feeding off each other. Two wind players, two guitarists and two percussionists venture on untrodden paths with a curious combo. Will they be fencing, playing a call and response or embracing passionately? Are these maybe three duos? This will be revealed at the Reykjavík Jazz Festival.

The music is written by the members of the two trios who have been at the forefront of the Icelandic jazz scene for many years and lead their own projects as well as being busy sidemen.

Ari Bragi Kárason : trumpet
Jóel Pálsson : saxophone
Hilmar Jensson : guitar
Guðmundur Pétursson : guitar
Magnús Tryggvason Eliassen : percussion
Matthías MD Hemstock : percussion
