In Iceland it is a rare thing for a jazz group to get the opportunity to play the same program 5 times in two weeks, especially when it's original music. This is mainly due to the fact that there is a pretty small audience for jazz, and there are very few people here in general (only 2.7 per square kilometer, to be exact) and they're concentrated mostly at the south and north of the island, which means you kind of have to get on an airplane to do it.

But we did it! And here is the first of a series of videos from the trip I'll be posting. It's the title track from our album Distilled. This is from the 2nd concert at Hannesarholt in Reykjavik.

A big thanks goes out to Reykjavik Distillery who contributed a tasting of their Crowberry schnapps to each of the concerts.
