Mezzoforte @ Java Jazz Festival 2017

Here you have an impression of our first of two Mezzoforte Shows at the Java Jazz Festival 2017 on the 3rd of March.
What a thrill to be back on the road again after almost 3 decades with these wonderful Icelandic musicians!
We rehearsed and played 2 shows in the Amsterdam Melkweg before taking of to Jakarta, Indonesia.
Amazing to see so many thousands of people loving this cool Jazz Funk Fusion vibe that has come out of this band that celebrates it's 40th anniversary this year.
Here you can see/hear our complete second show on youtube!
I hope to see the boys and their fans again soon.

Playing again with Mezzoforte

Early eighties of the last century I joined a fantastic Icelandic Jazz Fusion called Mezzoforte.
This was after playing in their support act in the Amsterdam Paradiso.
At the time they had a massive hit all over Europe and Japan called 'Garden Party'.
We toured all over Europe and further afield, did Montreux Jazz, Tivoli (Kopenhagen), Pori Jazz and 'Japan'.
Now, after almost 3 decades, they asked me to join in again for 3 shows, in the Amsterdam North Sea Jazz Club (28-02-17, sold out) and the Java Jazz Festival in Jakarta, Indonesia (03 & 05-03-17).
The band is still playing (since 1977!) with the 4 founding fathers, Eythor Gunnarsson, Fridrik Karlsson, Joahnn Asmundsson and Gulli Briem.
So I'll reunite with the guys I did hundreds of concerts with in our early twenties.
Photo is from the very first time ever we played together in Ronnie Scott's, one of the worlds most famous Jazzclubs, late 1983.

Percussion Loops HD is a vast library with hundreds of percussion loops and samples, played by a pro player and purpose built for iOS! Use them with your daw - a.o. Garageband, Auria, Cubasis, Multitrack Daw - (plus AUDIOBUS SUPPORT) or let them loop within the app itself. Nothing is programmed or synthesized, but played live by me.
