For the duration of Nordic Cool 2013, the Terrace Gallery will become the Cool Club, an extension of the Nordic Design Illustrated exhibition. The Cool Club will feature the iconic Arne Jacobsen Series 7 chairs, on loan from Fritz Hansen, the Embassy of Denmark in Washington, D.C., and Furniture from Scandinavia, and a new curtain made from fabric by Marimekko.
Proclaimed an "impressive newcomer" by the Village Voice, Icelandic pianist Sunna Gunnlaugs and her Trio bridge the Brooklyn/Reykjavik jazz divide by combining the elegance of the European approach with a fiery New York drive. Gunnlaugs's influences include American pianists such as Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett, as well as Scandinavian musicians Bobo Stenson and Jon Balke. Her playing is "firm yet pliant, moving from fragile vulnerability to robust power" and encompasses "musical depth that doesn't sacrifice inherent accessibility" (All About Jazz).
Part of Nordic Cool 2013.
