David Stackenäs is widely regarded as one of Swedenʼs most enquiring, adventurous and distinctive guitarists. This record documents his first project with Scottish saxophonist Raymond MacDonald. The duo creates highly textured and intimate soundscapes, at times strongly melodic, with a dark lopsided narrative. 'Lin' translated from Swedish means 'flax' and 'flax' in Swedish means 'luck'. While luck may have played a part when Stackenäs and MacDonald first met in January 2009 in the Glenn Miller Café in Stockholm, the rapport that developed on their first duo tour, culminating in this recording, is born out of a mutual relish of the spontaneous collaborative encounter. Both players embrace the way that these encounters can lead to new insights and artistic developments and this recording showcases these vital elements.
