SUNNY FOX // Copenhagen Jazz Festival

Sunny fox is a new group lead by Icelandic saxophonist and composer Sölvi Kolbeinsson.
It features Erik Kimestad Pedersen (NO) on trumpet, Benjamín Gísli Einarsson (IS) on piano, Mark Ibsgaard Gregersen (DK) on bass and Simon Forchhammer (DK) on drums.
The group focuses on new material by Sölvi, written with the strong and diverse personalities of the players closely in mind. Some of the material is complete written out compositions while other is more in form of sketches, where the imagination can fully take
over and lead to unknown places.
