Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). I like this album very much. It is a consistent and imaginative recording. From a musical standpoint this one stands in the same league with all the fusion post modern release but it has a kind of originality of its own. It seems to come from outer space. Keys sounds are amazing. Similar to the sounds you may find in the first Dream Theater album. Better not to talk about Shawn Lane. He blows here with the usual fury and abandon.

Jens Johansson: Fission by AAJ Staff, published on March 1, 1999. Jens Johansson is joined by, jams with, and fuses expertly alongside his brother, Anders, on serious drums, and guitar virtuosos, Shawn Lane and Mike "Sterno" Stern on this release. Sounds too hot, too frenetic, too "in-your-face" jazz-fusion? Not so. Jens structures it all just right. Let's say the backbeat funk keeps the fun upfront in this fusion-fission fest. Out of nine tracks, Shawn Lane solos very "Holdsworthian", guesting only on tracks one and four.

Fission is a fusion music album recording by JENS JOHANSSON released in 1997 on CD, LP/Vinyl and/or cassette. Heptagon HECD-016 (Sweden).
