The TD Jazz/Coastal Jazz Festival is on! There are a number of paid and free jazz performances happening around Vancouver for the next two weeks.
On Monday, June 27, enjoy a free performance on Granville Island with Sunna Gunnlaugs Trio. Icelandic pianist Sunna Gunnlaugs’ lyrical playing bridges the gap between American and Scandanvian jazz traditions. Influenced equally by Bill Evans and Bobo Stenson, she treats the listener to joyful, swinging buoyancy and ethereal abstraction. Her romantic compositions are brought to expressive life with Eivind Opsvik bass and Scott McLemore drums.
