August 12 street date. Non-returnable. TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE! "A PART & YET APART" - The album is a fine blend of melody and technical ability. A Part, and Yet Apart was the first release from this particular line up of the band and one that is popular with many modern jazz fans. The album includes the tracks Sarah's Still Life, No Truce With The Furies and Curiouser and Curiouser. During 2004 Bill Bruford's Earthworks travelled the globe playing concerts as far afield as Spain, Mexico, Europe and the UK. If you are perhaps familiar with the name but not heard any of the Earthworks albums A Part And Yet Apart would be a good place to start being as it one of the most accessible albums released by this remarkable band. EARTHWORKS UNDERGROUND ORCHESTRA - The close working relationship between two leading individuals on the London jazz scene, drummer Bill Bruford and saxophonist Tim Garland, is mirrored in the creation of theEarthworks Underground Orchestra. This little big band’s debut performance in the USA at Iridium, New York City, was captured live in full roaring swing, and the result will appeal alike to Earthworks fans, and fans from Bruford’s former life in King Crimson and Yes. The CD includes Earthworks standards such as Up North and Libreville, newer material such as Bajo del Sol and Speaking in Wooden Tongues, and the beautiful ballads It Needn’t End In Tears and Rosa Ballerina. Several of the band members (trumpeter Alex Sipiagin, alto player Steve Wilson and saxophonist Tim Garland) are distinguished jazz leaders in their own right.
