Fiona's Comments

Wow, wow, WOW! So damn pretty. This song has the restrained ambiance of a typical ECM-label piano trio, but with the buoyant soulfulness that makes Keith Jarrett's 70's American Quartet such a joy to listen to. Highly recommended.

About the Album

Long Pair Bond is the title track from the new trio album by Icelandic pianist Sunna Gunnlaugs, which marks her move home after spending over a decade in Brooklyn playing mostly in quartets with saxophonists like Tony Malaby, Loren Stillman and Ohad Talmor. Here her disposition is clearly more Scandinavian. With the trio format comes more space and there is an overall serenity to the album which, like her homeland, is disturbed from time to time by unbridled energy bubbling up under the surface. Sunna Gunnlaugs (piano), Porgrimur Jonsson (bass), and Scott McLemore (drums).
