On ISLANDS, MEZZOFORTE sounds much more ‘acoustic’ than usual. Instead of the keyboards, the brilliant Eythor Gunnarsson prefers the grand piano more and more. MEZZOFORTE have produced a fantastic album. With music that sounds timelessly beautiful and marvellously relaxed and elegant. Anyone who has a chance to experience this band with its furious instrumentalists in a live show will know what artistic fire is in this formation.
Mezzoforte is an instrumental jazz-funk fusion band from Iceland, formed in 1977. They signed a record deal with Icelandic label Steinar. Their biggest hit single was "Garden Party" (1983), taken from their fourth album (second international release) Surprise Surprise. It peaked at number 17 in the UK Singles Chart. The solo that takes place two minutes into "Garden Party", was created and played on the flugelhorn by English trumpeter, Stephen Dawson.
On ISLANDS, MEZZOFORTE sounds much more acoustic than usual. The drums of Gulli Briem sound more "jazzy", Bruno MA?ller's guitar is funky and smacking in a clubbing style, the wind section uses its space for characteristic solos and Johann Asmundsson keeps the whole thing together with his grooving bass. Is ISLANDS a perfect fusion CD? Yes, but why such categorization?
