Live electric excerpt of 'Jamaican Shuffle,' Track #3, from my 'Island Fantasy' CD at the Wellsville Creative Arts Center, Wellsville, NY.


Island Fantasy

"A musical, mythical tour of tropical splendor!"

"ISLAND FANTASY" is exactly what the title implies: a musical and mythical journey to a beautiful island paradise; shaped like a guitar; named the "Isle of Jábeam."

It is a dreamscape of fantasy and sound that conjures rum-soaked images of the Caribbean; where it is rumored to be; so the map on the back album cover shows. Smiarowski is adept at evoking moods and extracting feelings from his instrument, whether it is the celebrative chaos of "Festive Streets" or the romantic bliss of "Lullabye"; the edgy anxiety of "Tension Teaser," which is why one escapes to the 'Isle,' or the margarita magic of the "Isle of Jábeam."

Chas Eller (Keyboard player extraordinaire of Kilimanjaro fame), co-produced this project with Mike. His interplay with Mike is simply beautiful! It is as if they are reading each other's minds. Indeed, their collaboration is one of wondrous splendor!

This is the album, though released on Mike's own small independent label, that rivaled the biggest names in the instrumental music world.

As Mike says, "Most of us have dreamed of escaping to a beautiful paradise and so have I. In this frame of mind my first album, Island Fantasy, was created. Journey with me to the magical 'Isle of Jábeam' on a mythical tour of tropical splendor!".

A Direct Metal Master LP of this album is available on request.

"I personally invite you to leave all your worries and pressure behind: call your travel agent, pack your bags, make sure to bring your loved one - and travel to another dimension to enjoy your reward of Island Bliss!

"The magical 'Isle of Jábeam' awaits!!!" — Mike
