On his debut for MoonJune Records, the Indonesian iconic keyboardist, composer and producer, Dwiki Dharmawan, treats listeners to an exotic musical mélange of the highest order. Featuring fusion and progressive rock luminaries, Chad Wackerman, Jimmy Haslip, (and fellow MoonJune artists and Indonesian giants) Dewa Budjana and Tohpati, and as well the legendary violinist, Jerry Goodman. "So Far, So Close" features adventurous compositions, arrangements and performances.

Lovers of fusion's "golden era" (mid-'70's through the mid-'80's) will find plenty to keep them enthralled throughout this sizzling session, as Dwiki and company never let off the gas while scaling high-altitude sonic terrain in effortless fashion. Recorded in L.A., by Jeff Lorber, and mixed and mastered by the renowned producer, Robert Feist, Dharmawan has covered all the bases and spared no expense in producing this "coming out party," of sorts.

Despite a long, storied musical career which has been marked by large-scale successes and critical acclaim, worldwide, Dwiki remains constantly in search of new musical ground. His initial effort for MoonJune reflects that mentality, and is quite ambitious, and achieving, in its aims. "So Far, So Close" is an engaging and immediately essential progressive fusion album.

ARTIST PROFILE

Dwiki Dharmwan is one of his country's most prominent musicians – a cultural icon in his homeland. Dwiki is an accomplished pianist, keyboardist, composer, arranger, performer, peace activist, and a true cultural ambassador of his beloved country.

He has forged a very successful career (one that already spans more than 30 years), performing in over 60 countries with both solo and collective projects. (Dwiki's band, Krakatoa, remains one of Indonesia's most famous bands ever.)

Dwiki's talent is immense, and many future collaborations with other great MoonJune artists from across the globe are already in the works. Those who take the view that fusion is "past tense" are in for some very pleasant surprises!
