Those are familiar with the late saxophonist Embong Rahardjo's vibes on two JavaJazz previous releases, perhaps this album sounds slightly strange to them. Yes, keyboardist and band-leader Indra Lesmana preferred to add one more guitarist, Dewa Budjana, rather than to seek for another saxophonist to replace the 'irreplaceable' Rahardjo's spot. But, the bright-side is, guitarist Budjana apparently succeeded to show off his capability with his own twist. In addition, the album not only presents six brand-new songs, but also six old songs from previous album, 1998's Sabda Prana. Besides, there are two 'dedicated-song' here. The first is "Going Home" which is dedicated to Embong Rahardjo who passed away in 2001; their close friend and all at once ex band member. The second is "Java's Weather" which is dedicated to the legend Joe Zawinul of Weather Report who passed away in 2007.
