“Nat King Cole Christmas”

This quartet honours the legendary Nat King Cole trio. The jazz club Múlinn is at the top of Harpa, the glamorous multiple music venue at the heart of Reykjavik. On a clear night, sometimes the Aurora Borealis can be seen from the balcony. You will hear all the songs you love, including The Christmas Song, O Little Town of Bethlehem, O Holy Night and many more; the spirit of famous crooners won’t be far away: names like Michael Bublé, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and Tony Bennett.
The trio of players includes some of the most renowned jazz musicians in Iceland. Thor Breidfjord is one of the main “crooner” singers in Iceland, having recorded the Christmas album “Jól í stofunni” (available on Spotify) a few years back. He also enjoyed a long and successful career in Musical Theatre on London’s West End before moving back to his native Iceland.
