On "ISLANDS", MEZZOFORTE sound much more "acoustic" than usually. Instead of the keyboards, the brilliant Eythor Gunnarsson more and more prefers the grand piano. The drums of Gulli Briem sound more "jazzy", Bruno Müller'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? MEZZOFORTE have produced a fantastic album.
