Album · 2005 · 12 Songs. More By Scottish Guitar Quartet. See All. Fait Accompli. A Different Point of View.

Fortunately, the Scottish Guitar Quartet (how do they think these names up?) know that, and although they could run rings around each other with their hands tied behind them (something I'd also pay good money to see) they mostly don't, they let their music breathe and float as well as zoom. These guys do not want to be from Mississippi, there are no blues elements in their music at all.

With their latest album, Landmarks, the Scottish Guitar Quartet explore quite different territory. Nearly all the pieces were composed by members of the group (Ged Brockie, Nigel Clark, Malcolm MacFarlane, Kevin MacKenzie) and all are thoughtfully arranged to showcase the four guitars. But the SGQ's distinctiveness isn't just in its unique instrumentation. Excellent ensemble playing and strong solo work make this one of this years most original and fresh-sounding CDs - Pete Martin Jazz UK September/October 2005.

Scottish Guitar Quartet. Near The Circle ‎(CD, Album). Scottish Guitar Quartet. Fait Accompli ‎(CD, Album). Circular Records (6). CR 1001.
