Images of Iceland awaken the desire for many to visit such places of longing. Saxophonist Jóel Pálsson can consider himself lucky, because he was born and raised there. Musically, his career begins with the clarinet, which he learns at the age of seven, then as a teenager he switches to the tenor saxophone - jazz enters his life. His skills lead him to Berklee College of Music in Boston, USA, where he graduated summa cum laude in the mid-1990s.
Since then he has been one of the best jazz musicians in the far north. His music reflects his versatility - he likes to combine improvisation with fixed parts and is influenced by a wide variety of musical styles.

Thrill Box IIEnde der weiteren Informationen
Thanks to artists like Richard Galliano, the accordion has long since arrived in jazz. With Vincent Peirani there is now another musician who is not without reason called the "enfant terrible of the accordion". For the Frenchman there is no such thing as "too fast" or "too complicated". With his hands, anything becomes possible on the accordion. But Peirani is not only a breathtaking virtuoso, he is also a musician who loves to explore the melodious in music.
How beautifully his accordion can draw long notes and chords, and then lead into the next part of a piece with an incredibly fast run. After his successful concerts with the Frankfurt Radio Big Band in spring 2018, the likeable Frenchman now comes back and once again meets a familiar colleague, the conductor and arranger Magnus Lindgren.
