SKÚLI SVERRISSON & BILL FRISELL

May 2019

As the press release says, it seems astounding these two have never played together before. Now, they have recorded a full LP (only) of Sverrisson tunes written for Frisell, and, as you can tell from this video, it is a match made in heaven. That’s the good news.

The other news is that you can’t just buy this record. The label, Newvelle, only offers subscriptions of six, limited edition, 180 gram vinyl records a year, two released each month, to comprise a box set costing $400 (yes, that’s roughly $67 per record). This season also includes Lionel Loueke releasing his first ever album of standards, and a Steve Cardenas release dedicated to Charlie Haden and Paul Motian.

The poorer among us can only hope that the sympatico Sverrisson and Frisell discovered while doing this project will spur some more affordable single releases by this promising duo.
