Tesla Manaf feat. Mahagotra Ganesha – It’s All Yours


“Tesla’s first recording as a leader “It’s All Yours” integrates a very well-known Balinese gamelan—Mahagotra Ganesha, from the Bandung Institute of Technology—into his jazz-fusion band. The results have an undeniable warmth and charm. The music veers from slick, proto- smooth-jazz to complex prog-fusion. While there’s no shortage of friendly happy melodies, the darker moments of “It’s All Yours” are the most interesting. Here and there, the straight rhythms of the gamelan seem to clash with the swinging, pliable rhythms of sounds of Tesla’s very accomplished fusion ensemble. It’s an interesting idea that works far more often than it doesn’t. On its own, Tesla’s self-produced, independently-distributed debut represents a bold step that was also commercially successful in his homeland. As good as it is, it gives few hints of the inconceivably bold musical strides that Tesla took over the years ahead.” – All About Jazz
