"Guitarist Mikkel Ploug's star has been ascending—not only in his native Denmark, but also in international jazz circles."All About Jazz
Danish guitarist Mikkel Ploug has that rarest of jazz commodities, a working band, and this fourth extensive tour brings this stellar quartet to Denmark, Sweden, Spain and Ireland. With a brace of recordings under his belt for Barcelona's Fresh Sounds, the label that is an ever reliable bellwether of emerging jazz talent worldwide, this supple and inventive player and composer is growing in creative stature. Teasing out his original music is a band of some significance, with bassist and fellow Dane Jeppe Skovbakke, Irish drummer of the moment Sean Carpio and celebrated American tenor saxophonist Mark Turner, whose cool lyricism has been a key influence for emerging musicians of the last decade.
