Ronny Heimdal is a norwegian jazz musician who released his first solo album in 1999 named Timequake. He plays a really great and up tempo jazz fusion with superb progressive arrangements who remind a lot of one of the greats in this field, Allan Holdsworth, but as well, elements taken from Tribal Tech or Bill Bruford (solo works) are to be found here. The guitar sound of Ronny is very delightful with cheerful moments, complicated twists and turns combined with superb synth keys, nice bass chops and busy drums all the time (the drumer Zsolt Meszaros is also present on Waste Lagoon album), all this moments from Timequake gives a real treat to all jazz fusion/progressive listners. Pieces like Zone 98B, Timequake, Music Box or Tiaatte shows how talented this musician is and how impressive original ideas has, really impressive musicianship overall. He also is invited as guest on Shadow chaser album from 2001 of Norwegian progressive metal/rock band Waste Lagoon and aswell producer and enginner of the band. Excellent musician who never made it big in this genre, sad, because he is one of the most talentated and competent jazz fusion guitarist I've ever listen and this album Timequake is one hell of solid release in this field. Highly recommended, one of the better examples how must sound a jazz fusion album full of progressive elements thrown in.
