Bill Brufords Earthworks Random Acts Of Happiness CD
Long out of print re-issue of Bill Bruford’s Earthworks’ 2004 album.
 
Produced by and personally overseen by Bill Bruford.
 
Revisiting some of Bruford’s compositions from the late 1970s - most notably the beautiful ballad ‘Seems Like A Lifetime Ago’ and the bonus track ‘Beelzebub’ - following the departure of saxophonist Patrick Clahar, Bill Bruford’s Earthworks reformed for a 2003 US tour with saxophonist/composer Tim Garland, fresh from playing with Chick Corea.
 
‘Random Acts Of Happiness’ was recorded live at Yoshi’s in San Francisco, in keeping with the dictum that it is on stage that jazz really happens.
 
Garland’s contribution was immediately evident on new songs such as ‘Modern Folk’ and ‘Bajo del Sol’.
 
“The music they play is a maelstrom of wide ranging influences long since subsumed into a wholly original identity.” - Jazzwise
