"Latency is a compelling album by an outstanding Danish Big Band...The world is surely Kathrine's oyster if she can continue in this vein."

Reviews of Kathrine Windfeld Big Band's "Latency" (2017)

"Light, airy textures suit her particularly well; a wonderful, impressionistic piece here, called Wasps, would have delighted Duke Ellington. Windfeld’s band of leading young Scandinavian musicians is as tight and sharp as any you’ll hear."

The Guardian,  Dave Gelly (UK)

"På Latency bruger hun i endnu højere grad og mere erfarent hele big bandet som et instrument. Der er et flow og en velfungerende sammenhæng i musikken. Musikerne leverer mere end det forventelige."

JAZZNYT.com, Niels Overgaard (DK)

"Kathrine Windfeld’s second album further establishes the Dane in the vanguard of new arranger-composers and bandleaders.

Her work is in a league with bands like those of Maria Schneider, Darcy James Argue, Christian McBride and John Beasleys Monkestra-outfits, unafraid to be eclectic and eccentric but insistent on values growing out of the mainstream tradition"

            Rifftides, Doug Ramsey (USA)

"There is  nothing explicitly Scandinavian about the music in Latency, which could pass for a top-notch American Big Band. Windfeld's modern mainstream arrangements utilise dense ensembles and explore a colorful array of moods."

Downbeat,  Scott Yanow (US)

“The music is fresh is fresh and appealing and wholly original for there is not a standard or familiar theme in sight.”

Jazz Journal, Derek Ansell  (UK)
