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.

'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.'

Haftor Medboe Group - In Perpetuity - The Scotsman

01 May 2006
The Scotsman
Kenny Mathieson

THIS group's debut on Linn is a swansong for the former line-up, in which the guitarist Medboe is joined by soprano saxophonist Susan MacKenzie, trombonist Chris Greive and percussionist Signy Jakobsdottir, with additional strings from the Edinburgh Quartet and programming by Kenny MacDonald. MacKenzie's strength is the purity of her sound, and Medboe's semi-impressionistic compositions make clever use of the interplay between the instruments.
