David Torn Cloud About Mercury Bill Bruford Tony Levin CD
2019 CD in card sleeve edition of David Torn's essential 1986 release Cloud About Mercury.
 
Featuring Torn in a quartet with Bill Bruford, Tony Levin and Mark Isham, the album is a restlessly inventive combination of Art Rock, Fusion and Ambient Jazz experiments that is regarded as one of the best Progressive releases of the 1980s.
 
Bruford’s affection for the album is undying, “To this day, Torn’s guitar on ‘Three Minutes of Pure Entertainment’ from Cloud About Mercury makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck.”
