Description

Earthworks’ first album “is a heady concoction indeed, and one which joyously breaks down all sorts of musical barriers in its path.”

THE LONDON TIMES

 

  • Already well-known in progressive rock, drummer Bill Bruford formed Earthworks in 1986, as a deliberate return to his roots in jazz.
  • He seconded the brilliant keyboardist and tenor horn player Django Bates and saxophonist Iain Ballamy, frontrunners with the anarchic big band Loose Tubes, as his partners.
  • Bill encouraged the use of rock technology with jazz sensibility – heard to good effect here on the album’s two live bonus tracks ‘A Stone’s Throw’ and ‘All Heaven Broke Loose’
  • This album has been out of print for some time. This re-release is on Bruford’s own Summerfold Records and was overseen personally by him.
