Editorial Reviews

LIVE IN REYKJAVIK presents Icelandic Jazz Funk superstars MEZZOFORTE in concert on home ground with a set list which encompasses all their hits and favourite crowd pleasers and is the band s first official DVD release. MEZZOFORTE were formed in 1977 in Iceland by 4 teenage friends with a shared interest in fusion and funk music. The worldwide hit GARDEN PARTY from their 4th album made them the first Icelandic band to achieve international recognition. 30 years, 11 albums and over a thousand concerts later the band is still going strong with 3 of 4 original members touring regularly with a 6-10 piece band. The DVD was recorded in one of Reykjavik s legendary club and was filmed using 10 cameras and includes bonus material, interview footage and videos from the band s 30 year history. Additionally there are 2 CDs inclued with all live tracks. Incl. special liner notes in english and german!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mezzoforte Live in Reykjavik March 22, 2009
Format:DVD
Finally, kind of a dream come true being able to watch the amazing group Mezzoforte on DVD! I cannot overstate the fact that these musicians are among the best on the planet, the group are so professional and balanced.
Being a so called musician myself for 30 yrs, these guys are jaw droppers!

Seems to me they've got the good part of the best of the best, the DVD has 19 songs and some bonus stuff "mezzoforte timeline" - "rehersals in Reykjavik" and it's a brilliant display of JAZZ/BLUES/FUNK at it's best, the bass player (J.Asmundsson) makes it impossible to sit still, and along with the rythmic section and the funky organ/synth/piano (E.Gunnarsson) you just have to stomp and follow the groove. They also have a wonderful way of creating soft / mystic / melodious songs that are really touching and passionate.

Having said that, I certainly don't mean to take anything away from any of the other musicians. Worldclass!! Knowing how good it really is, I would have paid $50 without even blink for it.

Ok so I like it. Let me say what you shouldn't expect, do not expect a grand show stage setup, with lights, special effects, and outrageous stage clothes. Sure it is live, but not in a rock concert type of way. Wich btw suits me fine cause I'm really interested to see as much of the musicians and gears as I possibly can.

What you will see however is brilliant musicians having alots of fun, with smiling faces ripping of solos that'll make your hair at the back of your neck stand straight up, and the chin will drop into the floor again and again.

Just to clarify, I'm not in any way endorsed / related or anything else to anybody in Mezzoforte. *lol* neither am I getting paid for this review *lol*

Just love it! Grab one ... you won't regret it

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect ! July 20, 2013
Format:DVD
Audio and video quality it's simply PERFECT. Sound in DD and DTS 5.1 and anamorphic panoramic video on 16/9. The concert it's brilliant, more than 2 hours + extra material.

I've been a fan of Mezzoforte since I heard "Playing for Time" the first time. All their hits, played live. Fantastic sounds and impressive musicianship. What about a drummer doing a bass solo!?

5.0 out of 5 stars Why aren't they world famous? December 19, 2012
By peaches
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a master class in funk - from an Icelandic band. The gig is in a fairly small concert hall with no special effect, lasers or fireworks etc. The fireworks are entirely in the playing. The bass player, Johan Asmundsson, and the drummer, Gulli Breim, are phenomenal. This is the tightest band currently playing - check out the ending to "E.G" Blues for precision ensemble playing.
