Guitarist Andrés Þór and pianist Agnar Már Magnússon have played together for a long time in various different projects ranging from a school band while they were both teenagers to the collective ASA Trio which they lead with drummer Scott McLemore and everything in between. They have also both been energetic in performing, releasing their own music and leading projects both in Iceland as well as abroad.
On March 31st they released a duo album in honor of the late composer Jón Múli Árnason who would have turned 100 years old this year. The title of the album is “Aldarfar“ and it features 11 tunes in all, 9 by Jón Múli and 2 by Agnar and Andrés respectively, specifically composed as a tribute to the late, great composer.
For the Reykjavík Jazz concert the duo will perform music from their recently released album.
