"It is great that she - a lone woman - can create just that supplement of sounds and harmonics which she thinks the (very beautifully recorded) good old sounds of grand piano shall be accompanied by. It is lovely to receive noble analogue nice sounds together with the machines keeping othercolourings in the background, or the opposite." Anders Kirkegaard, JazzSpecial Danmark

”Susanna Lindeborg is a refreshingly original voice that easily holds the listener's attention for a full-length solo album: not an easy feat.” Steven Loewy, Cadence, USA

About Susanna Lindeborg “Excursions” LJ Records LJCD5252: "The piano improvisation of Susanna Lindeborg on Excursions are constantly fascinating. On most tracks we can only hear the piano by Lindeborg, but now and then she improvises together with electro acoustic backgrounds. The music is suggestively varied. Susanna Lindeborg can rumble out in powerful tone cascades, but also hesitate in a devout fragility. She chops the melody in cutting staccatos, but let it also seek its form in a sparkling flow. Solo piano is a difficult task. Keith Jarret has created a measure for solo improvisation, but Susanna Lindeborg creates her own, unique expression in the moment." Magnus Eriksson, SvD, Sweden
