Straight Ahead was a band built by some of the best musicians from Bandung. It was great to see the standout senior guitarist Venche Manuhutu returned to perform on stage to join the other amazing performers from the capital of West Java including the master of jazz technique Imam Pras (piano), Arif Setiadi(saxophone), Wachdach Band‘s bassist Teddy AB, Budiono on drums and the soulful vocalist Grace Sahertian. The combination of great musicians across generations resulted a stunning performance. They brought jazz evergreen such as “James”, “Sweet Lorraine” and “Santai”. Imam Pras, Arif Setiadi, Venche Manuhutu, Teddy AB and Budiono gave out a delicious mainstream jazz package that was totally enjoyed by the audience. Everyone experienced a masterclass performance by the masters, that we believe has reached the highest level of jazz playing in our nation.
