Skuli Sverrisson & Oskar Guojonsson – "Fragments"


The perfect youtube video for a sunday morning! Skuli Sverrisson playing with saxophonist Oskar Guojonsson. This piece is called “Fragments” from their album The Box Tree.
For those unaware of him – Skuli Sverrisson is an amazing bassist and composer from Iceland. Without putting “labels” on his music, or improvised music from this region – I will say, to anyone interested – improvised music from the Nordic region of Europe has a very unique, rather melancholic sound which borrows heavily from folk traditions.

Chris Dave and the DRUMhedz

Very excited about seeing Chris Dave play at the Melbourne International Jazz Festival in May/June. Check out this medley of hip hop grooves starting with “Find A Way” by Tribe Called Quest. Such a deep pocket. This guy has changed the way I hear and feel “groove”. For anyone interested – check out his work on the Robert Glasper Experiment’s debut album “Black Radio”. Very much looking forward to seeing this guy up close at Bennett’s Lane.
