Freddie King and Lachlan MacCall:

 

"Vocalist Freddie King has a rich vintage wine sound, coupled with a baritone sax timbre, not to mention an excellent way with a lyric.  Billy Eckstine fans please note and prepare to change your allegiance immediately.  Anyone who has heard him scat-singing will know that vocal improvisation comes to him as second nature.  You are either born with that inbuilt feeling for the extemporaneous or you aren't.  You cannot learn it."

 

Pat Quinn, Edinburgh Evening News

 

 

"Legend of the Edinburgh music scene, the vocalist likes to bebop as though it was 42nd street in the 40's.  He's a magnet for great musicians and good times."

 

Edinburgh Jazz Festival

 

 

Freddie has recently performed in South Korea, Bangkok, Kuala Lumper and Sydney in 2015 and this is his first Scottish tour.

 

 

Jazz guitarist Lachlan MacCall has a broad experience of playing jazz in the UK and abroad.  Over the years he has invited many different musicians to collaborate with him.  Dave Newton for example played with Lachlan in the 80s and is now one of the UK's leading jazz pianists.

 

Playing jazz has taken Lachlan to the USA and from Shetland to the South Bank.  He can work through a wide range of styles including Swing, Latin and Bebop.  He has written music for the BBC and is constantly working to develop new sounds and collaborations.  Lachlan is known in Edinburgh as the "Jazz musician's jazz guitarist" but as he is so self-effacing he would argue with this title.
