Suitable for a high-return at the box office Disney tear-jerker.

About the Album

Boasting a stellar lineup of modern jazz icons Larry Goldings, Bob Mintzer, Jimmy Johnson and Peter Erskine, Indonesian guitar maestro Dewa Budjana's sixth solo album (his second for MoonJune Records) is a progressive jazz master-class session of epic proportions. Overflowing with moments of elegance, grace, depth and invention, Joged Kahyangan is Dewa's musical interpretation of the beauty of heaven. Featuring eight exquisitely crafted, arranged and executed gems, Budjana and friends have raised the bar for the genre; each song is performed with a profound sensitivity and diction unquestionably worthy of the project's lofty ambitions. With all of the album's legendary participants clearly in top form – delivering stirring, superlative performances throughout – the net result is as immensely satisfying as it is astounding and solidifies Dewa Budjana's rightful place among the world's most elite musicians and the genre's most original and compelling newly-emerging voices. It is an intricately-woven tapestry of supreme modern jazz, eclipsing borders as it transports listeners to truly heavenly destinations. This is opulent, visionary modern jazz at its very finest.
