BILL BRUFORD'S EARTHWORKS - A PART AND YET APART CD
• The fifth album from Bill Bruford’s Earthworks, originally released in 1999
• Featuring pianist Steve Hamilton who trained in the US, and played with Bobby Hutcherson, Freddie Hubbard and Gary Burton among others; with Patrick Clahar, the fast-rising London tenorist best known for his work with Incognito, and Mark Hodgson on bass.
Following his mid-90s sojourn with King Crimson, drummer Bill Bruford returned to the scene with his fully-acoustic Earthworks Mark II, which hit the ground running in 1999 with ‘A Part And Yet Apart’.
Having effectively jettisoned electronic percussion Earthworks revisited the acoustic sax-piano-bass-drums line up with its muscular, visceral acoustic fusion.
This album has been out of print for some time and this re-release is on Bruford’s own Summerfold Records and was overseen personally by Bill Bruford.
“This is a heady concoction indeed, and one which joyously breaks down all sorts of musical barriers in its path.” The London Times
