Prime Trio, comprising of guitarist Kevin Mackenzie with former Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year, Peter Johnstone on organ and first-call drummer Doug Hough.
“While Johnstone is a highly accomplished pianist, his ability as an organist on this recording is quite stunning, sharing the lead alongside MacKenzie’s superb guitar playing. Doug Hough’s accompaniment is exemplary throughout. I’m none too sure whether jazz of this standard can simply be referred to as ‘feel good music’, but under the current state of the nation (so to speak), this is food for the soul.” Brian Palmer
“An organ trio in the true sense of the word, guitar, organ, drums. Bounce, which moves to swing and the lads have all the time in the world to enunciate the most musical language while in communion with each other and the music. Beautiful playing!” Linley Hamilton, Jazz World, BBC Radio Ulster
