Saxophonist Jóel Pálsson and pianist Eyþór Gunnarsson strip down known Icelandic tunes and perform in a simple duo setting. The repertoire ranges from folk music to pop songs, that you might call Icelandic “standards”.
Pálsson and Gunnarsson released the album “Skuggsjá” back in 2004. The album was very well received and got a nomination for the Icelandic Music Awards in the Jazz and Blues album category that very year.
