ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
LATIN FACULTY – LATÍNUDEILDIN (2012):
CD-1: English lyrics by JJ Soul, Portuguese lyrics by Jussanam da Silva and two instrumental songs. CD-2 includes the same songs with Icelandic lyrics written by various authors.
Nine vocalists perform on the album, veterans like Gudrún Gunnars, Eivor Pálsdóttir and Thor Breidfjörd and younger generation jazz-singers like Marína Ósk and Erla Stefáns.
The musicians include Jóhann Ásmundsson (of Mezzoforte) on bass who also engineered and mixed the album, Einar Scheving on drums, Vignir Thor Stefáns on kbs., Edvard Lárusson (of JJ Soul Band) on guitar, Birkir Freyr Matthíasson on trumpet and Stefán S. Stefánsson on saxophones who also produced the music.

THE COMPOSER:
Ingvi Thor Kormaksson is a native Icelander and has occupied himself with songwriting for the past 30 years or so and has to this day 11 albums to his credit. Altogether; he has had more than 150 of his compositions recorded by various Icelandic artists. He writes mainly in the AC (adult contemorary) genre, but jazzy chord progressions and bossanova rhythms are often featured in his music. Folk music traditions and blues can also be heard. - Collaborating with singer/songwriter, JJ Soul from Oxford, Ingvi has written music for JJ Soul Band's 4 albums.

"Since my teenage years I've admired the music of Brasil; Jobim, Bonfá, Lins and many more composers, and all the wonderful vocalists. Bossanova and samba rhythms have been featured on my albums, even in the more blues or folk oriented ones. Finally I decided to write music for an album that would showcase latin music only. There are two or three salsa songs here, but mostly the music nods towards Brasil and could also be categorized as AC or smooth-jazz."
