Review

Sometimes you get totally shocked by a young and rather unknown musician. Well, Stockholm based JOHANNES ZETTERBERG wasn’t totally unknown to me, since I once wrote a demo review of his AOR/Westcoast oriented band SPLIT VISION. However, I wasn’t prepared for such a splendid CD like this one. “Luna Nueva” is a fusion/jazz platter that will blow some listeners away. Zetterberg is mainly a bass player, but also plays keyboards and does some programming on this album. Don’t get scare by the word “programming”, because it’s not something you think of when listening to these songs. If I should mention one album that springs to mind here, it would be the MICHAEL LANDAU “Tales From The Bulge” CD from the 90’s. This being said, it reveals the fact that this CD is surprisingly guitar dominated when it comes to solos. Sure, also quite a lot of keyboard and saxophone melodies and solos but still I would say the guitar wins the race. And the musicians! Wow, both some prominent guys like ERIC MARIENTHAL (saxophone), JAY OLIVER (synth) and JASON REBELLO (piano) as well as utterly talented Swedes like Erik Linder (guitar) and Aron Mellergårdh (drums). All of the players are fantastic, and same goes for the excellent production by Zetterberg himself. Just a shortie of some songs. Try “Luna Nueva (Only A Dream)” which sounds a bit like the mentioned Landau but also some KOINONIA. Then “Tierra Del Fuego” takes me into YELLOWJACKETS territory, á la their “Four Corners” era. I could go on, but all I can say is: just get this awesome CD if you’re into fusion/jazz of highest class.

It's att truly great album! The musical talent is enormous, these guys are awesome. I love it!

listen on spotify

Did you know that?

Lostprophets recorded their 4th album with John Feldmann and Bob Rock but wasn´t happy with the result and wanted the album to be darker.
The band decided to self produce the album instead which has the title "Its not the end of the world but I can see it from here".
A summer release 2009 is expected.
