Yeah, I know it’s very late to say “Happy New Year”. So, in this my first update on 2014, I choose to post a song from an Indonesian legend jazz band, Bhaskara.
When I know the story of Bhaskara band for the first time, I was startled and couldn’t believe easily that this band is from Indonesian. Their first formation on 1985 (Kiboud Maulana on guitar, Perry Pattiselanno on bass, Karim Suweileh on drums, Abdullah Suweileh on percussions, and Luluk Purwanto with her violin play) have played a really successful performance and made North Sea Jazz Festival astonished.
Their success in the last year festival made them been invited again in North Sea Jazz 1956 with their new formation (Djoko W.H. on guitar, A.S. Mates on bass, Bambang Nugroho on piano, Didi Hadju on keyboard, Udin Sach on saxophone and the rest is just same as their old formation).
This song was taken from their first album on 1986. This album was sold more than 75.000 copy, a really fantastic achievement for a jazz album in Indonesia. I do love many tracks in this album, but to celebrate a new year, here is “Life Is Too Short To Worry”.
