Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe (with Jeff Berlin): Heart Of The Sunrise

Bill Bruford shared this video earlier this month of Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe’s 1989 performance at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA.

“This one takes me back, not only to this performance, but to its origins in rehearsals for Yes’ Fragile album of 1971,” Bruford shared. “I’ve always seen this track as a kind of breakthrough blueprint for how the band might go about these long-form compositions, something we’d been aiming for without really knowing it. When we heard it, we recognised it. We’d hinted at it in bits of the Yes album, and even Time and a Word, but this baby was born complete and perfectly formed. Nothing needed to be added or removed.”

Jeff Berlin joined the band for this performance of “Heart Of The Sunrise,” filling in for Tony Levin.
