Bill Bruford (Prog-Rock, Jazz, Fusion)(ex YES)

[laughs] I don't know. I'm kind of a pragmatic guy you know. I do whatever comes up at the time. Looking back on it, I just kind of thought it was rock with lyrics. The term fusion wasn't around much back then. I thought we were a rock band with interesting meters. It was an interesting sound and I had a clanging roto-tom type drumkit at the time and a genius of a soloist named Allan Holdsworth who's one of my favorite guitar players. I thought the band was very nice. I think the issue of whether it was rock or jazz never bothered me my whole career. Ever since I started with Yes, it was always "Well, is it rock?" And now with Earthworks it's "Well, is it jazz?" You know, the musicians never care and they really don't know either. Yes, of course Earthworks is jazz because large portions are improvised. The spirit of the music is from jazz, but it has rock elements in it and elements of other music as well.

Legendary Grateful Dead percussionistMickey Hart (2)reinvented himself as one of the most brilliant ideologues and mentorsof world-music with albums that are dazzling displays of percussions-basedmusic. The album by the Diga Rhythm Band, Diga (end 1975/early 1976 - mar 1976), was one of the first mature fusions of jazz and Indian music, one of the milestones of world-music. After Yamantaka (? 1982 - ? 1983), a collaboration withHenry Wolff and Nancy Hennings on Tibetan bells, andDafos (oct 1982/mar 1983 - ? 1983), another excursion into jazz, Hart would find a newaudience (the new-age audience) with At The Edge (? 1987/? 1990 - aug 1990) thatincorporates natural sounds, the orchestral Mystery Box (? 1995 - jun 1996) andthe more conventional Supralingua (? 1998 - aug 1998). 041b061a72
