These guys were one of my favourite jazz-fusion bands back in the early 90's and I recently got hold of their Live in Reykjavic DVD from 2007. 

I was very pleasantly surprised to fire up the DVD and see both Fredrik Karlsson (Guitar) and Johann Asmundsson (Bass) both with Sadowsky guitars throughout the DVD. 

It's quite well filmed too, so there's no mistaking the name on the headstock!

Brilliant playing all round from the band on this too - very slick musicianship and well worth a look/listen for anyone familiar with the band or those that like their jazz-fusion on the funky side.  Despite a no-frills stage/set it's been well filmed and the sound quality is great too.

I just got the DVD as well but have not had time to watch it yet.  I go back over 20 years with Mezzoforte!
They are an incredibly good band!

Indeed, 20 and more years ago.... we are getting old, Roger (don't worry, I'm not telling anyone!)
Mezzoforte is a great band, enjoyed a lot listening to Johann playing... still today  Smiley
