BMG



limited 6cd boxset

Released: 29th Apr 2022

£61.99


This 6CD box set covers Bill’s musical journey throughout the years; CD1&2, titled ‘The Collaborator’ – is a collection of songs from Yes, King Crimson, UK & National Health displaying Bill’s formidable talent.

CD3&4 titled ‘The Composing Leader’ is where Bill demonstrates his composing ability from his solo career and musical project ‘Earthworks’. The last two CDs titled, ‘Special Guest & Improvisor’ showcase Bill’s natural talent for writing and improvising with a plethora of musicians. Including, Roy Harper, Akira Inoue, Kazumi Watanabe, Steve Howe & many more. Bill Bruford's career is like his drumming sound -inimitable. Known for his ringing metal snare drum, crisp cymbal work, and knack for complex time signatures, a young Bruford came to prominence in the late '60s with Yes. The drummer completed his British art rock trilogy by briefly joining Genesis in the 1970s and spending a quarter-century with King Crimson through the late '90s. In between King Crimson dates, Bruford led a dazzling self-titled jazz fusion solo band from 1978 to 1980.
