Review By Anthony Callender,The Stereo Times,April 2000

" Joel Palsson­Ýs (ts) "Prim" contains some great music from a seemingly unlikely source. This Icelandic group shows us how universal is the music called jazz! The youthful Palsson is one to hear."



Review By Boris Rabinowitsch,Politiken,March 1999

"It will not come as a surprise, that there's outstanding jazz being played in Iceland, if you have heard musicians like alto sax player Sigurdur Flosason and pianist Eythor Gunnarsson. You can hear both on the CD "Prim", but still the album is a revelation, thanks to the leader, tenor- and soprano saxophonist Joel Palsson. Only this unbelievable expressive tone, that in its richness can't escape stealing one's heart. In addition, the an unusually sleek phrasing, and wide ranging compotional skills, that in "Urgur" and "GISP!" releases irresistable rhythmic energy, while "Baktankar" and an arrangement of an Icelandic folk song bring out a world that gets its inspiration from the Icelandic nature. Palsson's band is also of the higest level."



Review By Dagur,Naxos,December 1998

""Prim" is a find for those who love jazz and great saxophone playing...among the best that has been recorded of Icelandic jazz."

Review By DV,Icelandic Daily,October 1998

"Saxophone playing at the highest level...Joel is an exellent saxophone player...He has a good tone and blows without effort as one who is in control. On top of that, his compositions are clever and fun to listen to...All the playing is of the highest standard and this is, without doubt, one of the best jazz recordings that have been produced in this country."



Review By Morgunbladid,Naxos,April 1998

"Joel Palsson is the best Icelandic jazzplayer of his generation.....His sense of harmony and his technique are outstanding, the tone bold and clean, phrasing is rhythmical and the mind inventive. His interpetation of the two ballads was especially impressive that night."
