Mats/Morgan Band - Live
"Swedish jazz/prog rock outfit Mats Morgan Band owe a lot to the more exploratory flirtations between jazz and rock through the 60's and 70's, especially in John McLaughlin’s Mahavishnu Orchestra, and more significantly Frank Zappa's work...totally ridiculous fun." –
The Silent Ballet
"...the playing is unbelievable. These guys are top performers and their chops are brilliant....absolutely a must for fans of experimental music and latter day Zappa." –
All About Jazz.com
have been playing together for over 30 years, since Mats was 10 and Morgan was 14! They were 'discovered' at a very young age by Frank Zappa and they are musical legends in their native Sweden and beyond, known for their wild and funny musical performances.
's fifth album, the first by the extraordinary expanded lineup of the group (Mats,
-bass and Morgan-drums) and the first that I heard by them.
Professionally recorded in 1999 at Sweden's well-known Club Fasching, they dazzled the audience with their unbelievable chops and musical audacity, taking the music to the next level! They take their influences and blend them up for something that resembles the metrically difficult music of Egg combined with very adventurous jazz/rock and Zappa influences but performed at blinding speed with insanely assured musical authority...and it's a LIVE recording!
If you don't know this group and you only know their reputation, or you have seen all the amazing quotes from other musicians about how great they are, but you didn't know where to get your feet wet, you should definitely start here!
