ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The songwriters, Kormáksson and Soul, met in Iceland 1993 and soon began writing music together. In 1994 they made their first CD, "HUNGRY FOR NEWS", with JJ Soul Band and "CITY LIFE" in 1997. On both CDs the music is many-sided; blues, R&B, fusion, rock, pop and latin, sometimes all in one (blues-confusion?). Singer/songwriter JJ Soul is from Oxford, England but Ingvi is from Iceland as the rest of the band. The band has hitherto mainly served as a vehicle for the songwriting team. The band’s third CD is “REACH FOR THE SKY. The band’s fourth album is BRIGHT LIGHTS (2008). - Two songs, “City Life” and “Do, Re, Mi”, appeared on 4CD-compilation “The 1st Smooth Jazz Avenue” (Sony BMG Music Entertainment) in Poland. The band’s rendition of “My Funny Valentine” is on 3CD-compilation "In Love With Jazz" (QL Music, Poland)

Excerpts from reviews:
I seldom heard more talented musicians gathered on one album. Also the arrangements and lyrics are top level, and sound tight, complicated and easy listening at one time
Harold van Dorth, August 12th, 2008 http://www.bobtjeblues.com (August 2008)

Bright Lights, the newest album from JJ Soul Band, is a nice combination of easy listening blues and adult contemporary pop-rock. There’s a little something for everyone in this album. With a stellar band and instrumentalists at hand, the boys from Iceland execute nicely. ..All in all, it’s a well-produced and recorded album.

Well played and arranged, unimpeachable mixing…excellent musicianship… JJ Soul’s voice sounds great….top level blues/jazz/fusion album. - Dagbjartur Gunnar Lúdvíksson – Monitor; 19/08/2008

The (musical) approach is characterized by artistic shrewdness and good taste. Bright Lights is a fine and solid album, unaffected and competent. Interpretation always full of artistic aptitude and perception.
