Just played a powerful concert consisting of compositions by Icelandic tenor saxophonist Joel Pálsson arranged by our Joel kjartan tonleikarpiano player Kjartan Valdemarsson.  The roof barely stayed on Silfurbergs Harpa Concert House. Congrats to Joel and Kjartan and the Reykjavik Bigband. Hope we'll do this again soon. The band will be recording this in beginning of june.
