- “Long Pair Bond” the new trio album by Icelandic pianist Sunna Gunnlaugs, marks her move home after spending over a decade in Brooklyn playing mostly in quartets with saxophonists like Tony Malaby, Loren Stillman or 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.
Born in Iceland 1970 and an ex patriot of Brooklyn, Sunna Gunnlaugs who is equally influenced by such American pianists as Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett, and Scandinavians like Bobo Stenson and Jon Balke, has found a way to make music to which people on both sides of the Atlantic can relate. She has previously released 6 CDs and has toured extensively throughout the US, Canada, Europe and Japan.
The album is released on the Sunny Sky label via Edition Records.
