Bill Bruford, the Godfather of progressive rock drumming, has produced a short video (below) about the origins and aims of his Autobiography, the book everyone's talking about.

It's a memoir of life at the heart of progressive rock and electric and acoustic jazz. It's an honest, entertaining, and brilliantly-written account of Bill's 40 years on the road and in the studio. Whether you are a starry-eyed beginner, an inquisitive fan, or a seasoned professional, you'll be intrigued as Bill lifts the veil on life for the professional musician.

A rock musician with the temperament of a classical musician who became a jazz musician, Bill defies all the cliches about what drummers do, largely because he has always been out there redefining the role.

“Not just for drummers..." —Neil Peart

“Frequently hilarious." —Rolling Stone

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
