Skúli Sverrisson & Óskar Guðjónsson: Afternoon Variant


Sign in to view read count
Composer Skúli Sverrisson on bass guitar, is joined by fellow Icelander Óskar Guðjónsson on tenor sax. Skúli's unique bass guitar playing technique is well suited to Óskar`s soothing tenor sax. These two instruments create an otherworldly, hypnotic sound, quite unique... Their album Box Tree was released in September 2012, and won "Record of the Year" in the "Jazz and Blues" category at The Iceland Music Awards. As not only a jazz vocalist, but also a painter, I enjoy listening to this while working.
