This is music of great tensile strength, reflecting Tohpati's extraordinary guitar facility and sense--and his roots in Indonesian music. As ever this is a great combination of factors for your ears. The presence of Haslip and Wackerman seem to push Tohpati to a higher level than ever, and of course his bandmates do what you expect them to--give you some cutting edge prog-fusion playing like only they can.
Tohpati's originals here are noteful and musically interesting, many steps beyond the usual fusion licks--and original in a way that is all his.
It's a gas all the way, cutting-edge fusion from start to finish! Listen and dig in.
