Fermata - Dunajská Legenda (1980)

The fourth album from this band from Slovakia.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, keyboards, synths and vocals.

They got help from a handful of guests who provided drums, bass, strings and vocals.

I hugely enjoyed their first three albums and Fermata has got a big star in my fusion and jazz universe.  

Could they keep up their good work also in the nineteen-eighties ?

We still get a lot of jazz here and some fusion.

Some slickness has arrived on the scene with a strings ensemble and some vocals.

We still get some really superb guitar solos and lots of goodie goodie fusion stuff. But some rot at the edges had blunted the band and their music.

The music is also very much laidback and not as intense as on previous albums.

This is still an album well worth checking out. 

The quality is somewhere between decent and good. Check out this album.

2.5 points
