PROG REVIEWER
4 stars More and more bands from the Skandinavian country Finland are entering the Prog Archives site and I am pleased that Mist Season is also included. The debut CD from the Finnish five piece band will please the jazzrock afionados, what a virtuosic musicians, Finnish people can do more than play excellent ice-hockey and football, like my Ajax hero Jari Litmanen! The climates on the 11 songs alternate from bluesy and mellow to jazzy and swinging with great work on the piano and sax along some electric guitar (from jazzy to fiery). The rhythm-section sounds tight and powerful, often a base for solowork on the piano and saxophone. If you want to enjoy 54 minutes of great jazzrock oriented prog, this exciting album wil be yours!

2 stars Too nice for its own good.

Mist Season is a smooth jazz unit from Finland who claim in their cd booklet that each song tells its own story and that they believe in "music that does not hide occasional faults and failures." Very ironic quote because everything here is just a little too perfect.

The musicians are top notch and are shown in their best country club attire, playing completely inoffensive light jazz that is exactly what you'd expect to hear in your dentist's office while he's doing your teeth. Or in the Mall coffee shop while you're finishing your expresso. I do enjoy many jazz rock albums but this one just doesn't connect. I'm not saying this is bad music but it really needs to break a sweat. It's just too nice, too smooth, too light, too slickly produced, too professional, too perfect. It needs some grit and a smoky bar with a low ceiling. This is almost jazz you could meditate to and I'm not sure that's what most jazz fans want or expect. Now if you like your jazz very light and pretty you will want to ignore my rating and get this right away. The booklet contains gorgeous photography which for me was the highlight of the CD, each song has its own corresponding photograph. If you like light-jazz this might be a perfect disc for relaxing with drinks, but I can't recommend it broadly because I think it's missing quite a bit on the emotional vibrancy scale.

3 stars A Jazz/Progressive Rock band from Hämeenlinna, Finland, Mist Season were formed in 2004 and featured Keijo Hakala on bass, Timo Kajamies on keyboards, Kimmo Pörsti on drums, Kari Rantakallio on sax and Tommi Varjola on guitars.Some of the members had Classical education, some were involved more in Jazz Music, and the result of these influences was taped in late-2004 in the band's self-titled and self-released debut.

Balance is the perfect word to desrcibes Mist Season's debut, an all instrumental jazzy Progressive Rock effort, containing plenty of intense as well as mellow moments, with a well- crafted sound, interesting compositions and decent instrumental performances.The tracks show much diversity, ranging from proggier moments to full jazzy-oriented material, featuring always a strong melodic content and a unique dreamy atmosphere.Especially the opening tracks are nice examples of smooth jazzy Progressive Rock with melodic themes and beautiful interplays, fronted by the impresive keyboard work of Kajamies and the JAN AKKERMAN-like jazzy guitar stylings of Varjola.Just halfway throughout the gears are slowed down and the band's attitude is now closer to Lounge Jazz and light Fusion with heavy sax solos, more piano-based themes and a overall lighter approach.But the ending of the release holds some great surprises like on ''Kati'' with its great CAMEL-esque atmosphere and the clever use of flutes or the long ''Marieholm'', characterized by the virtuosic guitar exercises of Varjola and the fair amount of proggy breaks.

An interesting effort of well-developed and -executed jazzy Prog, sure to please also fans of melodic Progressive Rock who do not mind a jazzy taste among their listenings.Recommended.

4 stars It's actually eight years ago when I first borrowed the Finnish MIST SEASON's two first albums from a library and was pretty pleased. The CD booklets were packed with beautiful outdoor photography, mostly nocturnal in the case of the debut, suitably steering my reception towards starry-eyed romanticism. Perhaps my music taste was back then slightly mellower than today, as some of this music now feels too spinelessly soft. "Too nice for its own good", headlines Finnforest's two-star review for this debut. I certainly understand his thought: MIST SEASON's instrumental, highly melodic and smooth jazz-fusion indeed often sounds harmlessly nice, especially when it is at its happiest mood. My female friend recently commented on this album that some tracks sound like opening themes for TV quiz programmes, preferably from the late 70's or 80's, and I agreed. The first track 'Peppermint Patty' is exactly in that style with the joyous sax melody. I usually prefer melancholia over happiness in music anyway.

'Lydia', also composed by the keyboard player Timo Kajamies, succeeds in combining brighter sections with slow, dreamy and deeply romantic ones. 'My Joy' and 'Life Is' are other TV theme-like tunes. The playing is very polished, the saxophone is a bit cheesy all the way and the bright piano decorations of 'My Joy' are slightly oriented to easy-listening / New Agey stuff. But luckily the album gets better.

'Siren's Gaze' by drummer Kimmo Pörsti and bassist Keijo Hakala is a relaxed, serene ballad and quite beautiful as such. The mellow guitar sound reminds me of PAT METHENY. All in all the romantic emotions that grace the whole album come to life much better when the general mood is less joyous than on the earliest tracks. 'Kati' by Pörsti is a delicate love tune, featuring lovely flute playing. The drummer is without a doubt a romantic soul, and it can be witnessed also in PAIDARION's music that he has composed.

The tightest composition of the 11 is 'Skeptoscopic Detector' which allows the guitarist Tommi Varjola to show off his skills -- that could have been put in much larger use on the album. The track approaches the Fusion era's halcyon days of the mid-seventies. 'Lullaby for the Little One', again by Timo Kajamies who composed tha lion's hare of this album, is a peaceful and pretty closing tune.

Even though I don't like the rather naive happiness of some tracks and would welcome some more spine, I'm rounding my 3½ stars upwards with the help of the lavish and beautiful layout. This band is warmly recommended to all friends of mellow and melodic jazz/fusion.
