I'm heading to the airport to pick up Maarten Ornstein, the saxophonist from Holland who will be performing a couple of duo concerts with me on the Reykjavik Jazz Festival this week.
Maarten's influences contain a great blend of traditional and ethnic music and I'm looking forward to exploring some different music with him.
We are planning on playing some originals, Monk, Frisell, the Beatles and some Turkish tunes and who knows what else.
Friday 14.8 at Reykjavik Jazzfest, Hannesarholt at 9pm.
Saturday 15.8 Bryggjan in Grindavík at 12 noon.
We will also play a little for the opening ceremony on Thursday at 7pm.
