Carsten Pieper Without knowing, I bought two albums featuring the same sax player (Óskar Gudjónsson), whom I didn't know before, at the same day, amazing!
Colourful, subtle drumming by bandleader Scott McLemore, an American relocated to Iceland. The album definetely comes with a "nordic flavour". Nice playing the other band members, too! Favorite track: Remote Location.

Alan Hall Amazingly smooth atmospheric album in the ECM style. The more you listen, the better it gets. All good! Favorite track: Remote Location.

Artemis Robison For me, the track 'Citizen Sitting Zen' paints a picture of a family of hibernating bears all snuggled up for a warm winter's nap...til the end, where they're all roly-poly tumbling about in a field of spring flowers. But hey, that's just me. Favorite track: Citizen Sitting Zen.

It's an album about fond memories and fast friends, homesickness and new beginnings, musical heros and cooking. It's a collection of songs that each have a unique significance to me, and I was lucky enough to find four musicians who could interpret them with equal uniqueness.
