Indonesian guitar legend, Dewa Budjana is offering his most ambitious album to date, “Zentuary”. A veteran player whose career has already been marked by collaborations with a virtual “who’s who” of musical luminaries, Budjana still manages to raise the stakes and elevate the level of his game on his fifth solo album. Supported by an all-star cast of enormous proportions – including jazz legend, Jack DeJohnette (over forty years on the ECM label), the iconic progressive bass and stickman, Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel; King Crimson), and the extraordinary superstar sideman talents of Britain’s Gary Husband (Allan Holdsworth; John McLaughlin) – Budjana offers a profusion of cross-cultural delicacies which tease, cajole, enthrall and, ultimately, satisfy listeners. Special guests include guitarist Guthrie Govan (The Aristocrats; Steven Wilson, Tim Garland (Chick Corea; Bill Bruford) and Danny Markovich (Marbin). Aside from his renowned skills on guitar, Zentuary documents Budjana’s position as one of the genre’s most prolific, accomplished composers and arrangers. The music on this 2-CD set is a magnanimous affair, where its highly skilled participants are given ample space to create and express. The net result is a soaring, synergistic mélange of brilliant, articulate instrumental progressive rock, jazz-rock fusion and world music.
