Emma Larsson & Sami Linna @ Salmagundi Club
Caught a set of the Swedish jazz singer Emma Larsson and Finnish guitar player Sami Linna playing standards @ the Salmagundi Club on 5th Ave & 12th St. I’m not used to listening to standards that long, but it was actually pretty nice. It’s hard to listen to that many love songs in a row, though, it might have been good to include a few instrumental pieces in between. But Emma sounded very nice and I thought Sami did a really good job, but I wonder if I could be objective at all, because I know him pretty well. What a nice room for a jazz duo gig!
