Bill Bruford was the drummer with Yes
and King Crimson
before he moved to jazz with his band Earthworks. Heavenly Bodies – The Expanded Collection
takes 23 tracks from the Earthworks Complete
deluxe box set to present a tidy overview of the band’s 20-year history in a double CD.
Bruford says: “Heavenly Bodies- The Expanded Collection
serves as the ideal ‘beginners’ guide’ for newcomers to the band. Progressive Jazz isn’t a million miles from Progressive Rock: both genres prioritise change from inside and out. People would come away from our gigs saying “I didn’t think I liked jazz, but if that’s jazz, I love it!” Heavenly Bodies- The Expanded Collection
is the perfect jumping off point to dip your toes in the water.”Order Now
All audio, visual and print materials for this compilation were sourced and curated by Bill Bruford and the package comes with additional original artwork by award-winning illustrator, photographer and filmmaker Dave McKean.
The 20 CD / 4 DVD Earthworks Complete
deluxe box set was released in mid-2019 and is available here
