Jazz pianist Sunna Gunnlaugs will play Cliff Bell’s in Detroit on June 22. She was supposed to perform at the Harlequin Cafe in 2003, but that summer’s big black out forced her to cancel the show.
Gunnlaugs and her trio are promoting their latest release, Long Pair Bond, and are touring coast to coast.
“The new album by the trio 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.”
The album can be heard here.
