The imaginative debut recording of Haftor Medboe Group who excel in creating deep grooves and delicate textures through bold and vibrant sax lines combined with trombone, guitar and percussion.

Download includes - cover art, booklet

The Edinburgh-based Haftor Medbøe Group are a spellbinding and international hybrid - four members, four homelands - with a truly unique blend of jazz, strings and technology. Norway, Iceland, Australia and Scotland are the countries in question with Scotland's cultural capital the perfect melting pot.

This album has been two years in development during which time Haftor invited the award-winning Edinburgh Quartet to add their blend of strings to his already unique sound. Wind Sheer combines bold and vibrant sax lines provided by Susan McKenzie, the fluid languor of Chris Greive's trombone and distinctive and melodic guitar by Haftor Medbøe. Signy Jakobsdottir underpins the music through sensitive yet propelling globally-inspired percussion, creating deep grooves and delicate textures. The finished result is a successful amalgamation of classical discipline and jazz improvisation that combines with beautiful melodies to create a truly mesmerizing and memorable album.

Jazznyt
You can almost visualise the Scottish scenery when listening to the disc. High mountains, lush moss-green valleys, open landscape, sea-spray, castles, the middle ages and a picturesque pub with ... yes, whisky.

(This) genre-blurring recording has a distinctly cinematic feel.

The Scotsman
Semi-impressionistic compositions make clever use of the interplay between the instruments.

The Herald
Sits happily in the same contemporary bag as the Bad Plus, Bill Frisell, and Esbjorn Svensson - all acts with whom Medboe's band has shared a stage.
