The last fully studio album that Bill Bruford’s Earthworks ever recorded (all subsequent albums were live).
Originally released in 2001, the album's title The Sound Of Surprise is credited as New Yorker writer Whitney Balliett’s definition of jazz.
Out of print for some time, this re-issue on Bruford’s own Summerfold Records was overseen by BB.
Stand-out tunes include the title track - featuring a rare, blistering Bruford solo - and the beautiful siren-song Come To Dust.
