4 stars Indonesian guitarist and composer TOHPATI is arguably best know for being a member of the Indonesian band SimakDialog for the last 20 or so years, but in the last few years he has also invested time into various side projects, and has also found the time to embark on a few purebred solo production runs. "Tribal Dance" is the most recent of his solo albums, and was released through Moonjune Records in the fall of 2014.

Guitar dominated and guitar driven instrumental jazz rock is the chosen turf for Tohpati, and his take on it is fairly energetic at heart, and of the kind that will intrigue those with an interest in technically skilled guitarists who showcase those abilities within defined frameworks. We have passages and sequences of a more technical oriented nature, but never as the sole dominant aspect of a composition, they are always explored within a broader context. As far as such ventures go this one is a high quality affair, and one easily recommended to fans of instrumental jazz rock and fusion, especially to those with a soft spot for high quality guitar oriented escapades of that kind.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
