Guitarist Ásgeir Ásgeirsson and his quartet will pay tribute to the legendary guitarist Wes Montgomery. 60 years ago Wes released the legendary record Incredible Jazz Guitar which was the start of his recording career for the Riverside label. Wes Montgomery´s repertoire contained classic jazz standards and his own composition and later popular songs. Wes Montgomery is without a doubt one of the most influential jazz guitarist. On this cosy evening your host will take you through his short carrier in words and in music spanning from 1959 – 1968.
Ásgeir Ásgeirsson, guitar
Agnar Már Magnússon, organ and piano
Þorgrimur Jónsson, bass

Múlinn’s program is ambitious, diverse and a good example of the liveliness that characterizes the Icelandic jazz scene. Visitors can listen to top quality jazz at a reasonable price with a great view over the harbor. Múlinn is a cooperation between Félags Íslenskra Hljómlistarmanna (FÍH) and Jazzvakningar. The club is named after Jón Múli Árnason who was also an honorary member and patron of Múlinn. Múlinn was founded in the fall 1997 but the first concert took place in the beginning of 1998. Múlinn is funded by The City of Reykjavík and The Iceland Music Fund and is in collaboration with The World Music Club and Harpa.
