“Classically trained, with technique to spare, Skogstad succeeds mightily in the effort [...] with elegance and passion, tenderness and yearning, mixing the cerebral and the earthy, with intensity and grace. By turns muscular and percussive, delicate and restrained, with a smoldering tension always lurking in the background.”

(Dan McClenaghan, allabaoutjazz.com)
