Day 4, Friday June 18th. Baltimore to New Jersey. A Day of Driving.

Go to Part 1 | Part 2

Driving to New York today was pretty smooth. IMG_0504We were shocked by how much we had to pay in road tolls and glad we didn't hit much traffic. We dropped Loren off in Brooklyn since he had another gig that night. We drove around the old hood a little, past our old apt. building and ended up having a great lunch at the V spot on 5th Avenue.

Day Two and Three. Thursday June 18th. Baltimore

It is amazing how hard it is to find the time to even maintain a blog while on the road and not to mention a internet connection. Sadly our car doesn't come equipped with on.

So Wednesday was our day off, sort of, in Baltimore. Unfortunately instead of chillin' we spent it stuffing 460 envelops with CDs and info sheet to send to radio stations in the US. (read more…)

JazzSessionThere is so much going on right now. I'm ecstatic to announce that we reached our Kickstarter goal with the help of 64 generous and wonderful people. I am expecting copies of my new CD "The Dream" today and tomorrow I leave for a short US tour. The CD will be available for order here on June 17th or if you are in the Baltimore area you could come get your own copy at An Die Musik that evening or any of the following performances.

Today I am very fortunate to be featured on The Jazz Session with Jason Crane. I love the teaser that he sent out on Twitter. "Which Icelandic pianist got into jazz through Kool and The Gang?" That's right! I was a Kool and The Gang fan and you can hear me talk about that in this interview and also hear samples from the new CD. Download The Jazz Session podcast or just listen to it online here.
