Following his mid-1990s sojourn with King Crimson, drummer Bill Bruford launched his fully-acoustic Earthworks Mark II, which hit the ground running in 1999 with A Part And Yet Apart.
Jettisoning electronic percussion, this version of Earthworks inventively explored the creative possibilities of an acoustic sax-piano-bass-drums line-up.
Featuring pianist Steve Hamilton who trained in the US, and played with Bobby Hutcherson, Freddie Hubbard and Gary Burton among others; with Patrick Clahar, the fast-rising London tenorist best known for his work with Incognito, and Mark Hodgsonon bass.
This album has been out of print for some time and this re-release is on Bruford’s own Summerfold Records and was overseen personally by Bill.
