Islannin jazzhuippuihin lukeutuva pianisti Sunna Gunnlaugs yhdistää voimansa trumpetisti Verneri Pohjolan kanssa. Alun perin Tampere Jazz Happening -tapahtumassa debytoinut, lumoavan melodisista soundistaan tunnettu yhtye ilahdutti viime keväällä esiintymällä mm. Bremenin kuuluisalla Jazzahead!-festivaalilla. Nyt kokoonpano saapuu G Livelabiin ja tarjoilee materiaalia kvartetin ylistetyltä Ancestry-albumilta.

Pianist Sunna Gunnlaugs is one of the most sought-after musicians in the Icelandic jazz scene. The Washington Post has described her music to have "timeless virtues as lyricism and grace". A few years back, Gunnlaugs's trio debuted in Finland at Tampere Jazz Happening bringing trumpeter Verneri Pohjola into the mix. In January the Nordic combo re-unites at G Livelab to perform material from their lauded album "Ancestry".
