Jazz, Rock and Classical Unite!Posted
After the very much jazz-centric sound of Lizard, Robert Fripp wanted to further expand the band's sound, so Boz Burrell was added as bassist/singer, and with his angelic vocal chords, the whole palette of musical soundscapes was open to Maestro Fripp. Along with the jazz musicians that would make its predecessor so great, Fripp added classical musicians to the recording of Islands, making for a truly must-have album, featuring a unique blend of jazz, rock and classical, plus some heavy guitar riffs on songs such as "Ladies of the Road" which would be more prominent on later albums. Making this CD even more of a must-have is the DVD, which features many alternate versions of the songs contained on Islands, making this THE definitive release. If you want to hear something out of this world, you MUST buy this album!
I would recommend this to a friend
