Malay Tone Poem

Nicolas Meier and Dewa Budjana, the Swiss and Indonesian virtuoso guitar players bring a stellar line-up to the club that features one of the world's great electric bassists, Jimmy Haslip (The Yellowjackets, Al Jarreau, Chaka Khan, Donald Fagen) and Asaf Sirkis, one of Europe's finest drummers. 

Both guitarists, who co-lead this group, have new albums released worldwide on Steve Vai’s Favored Nations label. Nicolas Meier’s album “Infinity” features Jimmy Haslip and Vinnie Colaiuta, and Dewa Budjana’s album “Zentuary” features Gary Husband, Tony Levin and Jack DeJohnette.

After touring the world extensively as a member of The Jeff Beck Group, Nicolas Meier needs little introduction to Spin audiences for his work with Pete Oxley in their fantastic guitar duo. Nick is one of the most capable, inventive voices on his instrument in jazz and rock today.

Dewa Budjana, will be less well known to British audiences, but enjoys the reputation of being the leading guitar player in South East Asia and whose work truly transcends genre. He plays with some of the finest musicians in jazz, such as Peter Erskine, Antonio Sanchez, Joe Locke, Gary Husband, Tony Levin, Vinnie Colaiuta, Jimmy Haslip, Jimmy Johnson, Jack DeJohnette, Chad Wackerman, and many more. 

We expect tickets to go very quickly for this gig!
