July 24th – MOVE
Four years ago Óskar Guðjónsson formed his quartet MOVE with the long term goal of developing a band with a shared sense of improvisation and interplay. After exploring a wide range of music the band has arrived at a program of original compositions by Óskar, which will be recorded this summer. The members are all well known on the Icelandic music scene.
Óskar Guðjónsson, saxophone
Eyþór Gunnarsson, piano
Valdimar Kolbeinn Sigurjónsson, bass
Matthías M.D. Hemstock, drums
Múlinn’s program is ambitious, diverse and a good example of the liveliness that characterizes the Icelandic jazz scene. Visitors can listen to top quality jazz at a reasonable price with a great view over the harbor. Múlinn is a cooperation between Félags Íslenskra Hljómlistarmanna (FÍH) and Jazzvakningar. The club is named after Jón Múli Árnason who was also an honorary member and patron of Múlinn. Múlinn was founded in the fall 1997 but the first concert took place in the beginning of 1998. Múlinn is funded by The City of Reykjavík and The Iceland Music Fund and is in collaboration with The World Music Club and Harpa.
Tickets are 3.000 ISK / 2000 ISK for seniors and disabled and 1.500 ISK for students.
Organizers of Múlinn are Ólafur Jónsson and Haukur Gröndal.
