Mondays in Iceland - #14


Reykjavík harbor, 2004

For a little different view of Iceland check out this post on Chris Albertson's wonderful blog Stomp Off.

Chris is a veteran of the New York City Jazz scene and his blog contains a wealth of fabulous photos and memorabilia- absolutely fantastic stuff! The linked post tells the incredible story of how he came to America. I'll be watching this site for more stories of his childhood.

A gentle name for a killer ship.

What a find! It looks like his blog has everything: art, old photos, interesting stories. As someone who loves jazz and blues, I am delighted that you discovered this! How did it happen?

and with anger chafed,
all the Æsir’s halls
beneath her trembled:
in shivers flew the famed
Brisinga-necklace..."

Not always so gentle...
