Fugu biography
Not to be confused with a French pop band of the same name, this FG is a fusion quartet from Marseilles founded at the turn of the millennium by ECLAT's guitarist Philippe Troisi and keyboardist Thierry Masse; they were joined with bassist Lilian Bencini (of Alain ORTEGA) and percussionist Fred Pasqua. Their material is an eclectic blend of prog with jazz-fusion textures garnished with Flamenco guitars and atmospheric keyboards.

Their only release todate, "Harmonia Maudit", is an all-instrumental album where Troisi's electric and acoustic guitars steal the spotlight on most tracks, while Bencini and Pasqua provide a great rhythm section that gives the music its fusion touches. Only maestro Masse's keyboards don't figure prominently, perhaps the only weak point of the album. There's an overall 'classical' feel throughout that may remind you of The ENID or Steve Hackett but with a definite jazzy, almost bluesy touch. The compositions are well spoken and the musicianship focuses on virtuosity rather than technicality; the arrangements are stunning and the production is flawless.

FG's material will certainly ring true to fans of Bill Bruford, Allan Holdsworth, BRAND X and perhaps Jan Akkerman. Fans of RETURN TO FOREVER will find some common points although FG doesn't share their normally frantic pace.

Review by b_olariu

3 stars Fugu is an obscure jazz fusion band from France with some progressive rock leanings here and there. The band was formed around Eclat's guitarist Philippe Troisi and keyboardist Thierry Masse in late '90's. They release so far a single album in 2000 named Harmonia Maudit at Musea records. To be true, the album is not quite the jazz fusion I like most of the time, I mean the compositions doesn't go anywhere, that doesn't mean are bad. The musicians rely more on skills, who are very good of course, but the compositions suffers because of that. Also here are included some symphonic and even flamenco parts melted ok with the fusion arrangements, maybe the most intristing parts. I can't trace a track to be the best, all are same level, all are good, but something is missing overall. Anyway the album desearve to be a 3 star , but not realy my kind of jazz fusion I'm listenting constantly.

3 stars The only album of this French band is quite typical example of French progressive symphonic fusion: you will hardly find there complex constructions, rhythms or experimental sounds. But the album is full of melodies, emotions, symphonic prog and even Flamenco.

Some songs (and there are many of them on this album) are first of all symphonic prog ( in a key of Camel or Focus), and just in some jazz-fusion element is more important. From another hand, there are some places with acoustic Spanish guitar and very jazzy atmosphere (but not fusion again).

In whole, this album is really nice surprise for instrumental melodic, even mellow in moments, music lovers, but searching in some jazzy flavours in sound. If you (as me) like more energetic, technical and complex jazz fusion, this album could be too sleepy and a bit boring. Not complex or energetic enough to catch your attention.

Still not a bad work though, but more for Camel lovers, than for Mahavishnu Orchestra fans.

Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition.
