Review: This double disc is a complete overview of pianist Dharmawan's stunningly broad stylistic span. Not everything here is world-centric and it is not always pretty, but the gems are worth it, where he addresses the relationships between Indonesian music & modern jazz in unexpected and startlingly creative ways. Mark Wingfield adds some sonic guitar in places.
