Album Description

ALLT ER ÓMÆLIÐ is a new duo record of free improvised music by Icelandic saxophonist Tumi Árnason and percussionist Magnús Trygvason Eliassen, released February 22. 2019. The record is being released by Reykjavík Record Shop and is available for sale on vinyl and as a digital download. Although the Icelandic music scene puts out an enormous amount of music every year, the free improvisation and free jazz genres remain relatively small and obscure, with physical releases being few and far between. ALLT ER ÓMÆLIÐ is probably the only sax & drum duo release to come from Iceland yet. The nine original compositions on the record display a broad range of dynamics and timbres, ranging from extremely quiet and understated passages to dense high energy playing, often blending the acoustics of the instruments with electronic processing.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
