20:00 - Norðurljós - NOR feat. Jorge Rossy (DK/IS/ES)
When Danish Richard Andersson hooked up with Icelandic Oscar Gudjonsson and Matthias Hemstock more than 8 years ago, there was a strong and immediate sense of unity. Since then, audiences all around Scandinavia, has witnessed the continuous journey of the trio towards an even more unified expression. For this special occasion NOR has invited the world class ECM recording artist Jorge Rossy to join the trio on vibraphone.

Rossy has over the years been busy working as a drummer with highly acclaimed artists such as Brad Mehldau, Joshua Redman, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Charlie Haden, Wayne Shorter, Lee Konitz and Joe Lovano. Recently Rossy debuted as band leader playing vibraphone and marimba on an ECM recording called Puerta.
“To have Jorge Rossy joining us is an honor. His melodic and beautiful sound will fit perfectly with our music and we are looking forward to experience the music unfold with him in the band.” Says band leader Richard Andersson.

The Soul Patrol is a jazz/blues crossover project led by saxophonist Sigurdur Flosason who is the composer of all music and lyrics performed by the group. Apart from Sigurdur who plays saxophone, the band features Þórir Baldursson on Hammond-organ, Andrés Þór Gunnlaugsson on guitar, Einar Scheving on drums, Erik Tengholm on trumpet and Samúel J. Samúelsson on trombone. The concert is a release party for two records released during Covid time entitled “Cyanide” from 2021 and “Criminal intent” from 2022. The records feature seven well known singers. Four of them will be a part of this concert: Andrea Gylfadóttir, KK, Friðrik Ómar, Stefán Hilmarsson og Rebekka Blöndal. The lyrics create a world where many of the characters are small-time criminals, psychopaths, stalkers or hopeless drunks. The diversity of human sexual behaviour comes into play as does good old love. Not everything is strictly legal or moral! The concert is sponsored by the SUT foundation.
