"Over hundreds of nights and thousands of concerts, the imperceptible removal of grime and accretion will, you hope, let your light shine forth more brightly" - Bill Bruford.
 
Bruford has, by his own count, played some 2800 concerts since his light began shining in the early 1970s, as a singularly brilliant art-rock drummer with Yes and King Crimson. This double live album, with tunes drawn mainly from the studio albums A Part, And Yet Apart and The Sound of Surprise, shows Bruford in the context of the later acoustic sax-piano jazz quartet incarnation of his long-running Earthworks band.
