Chris Comer has a candid conversation with jazz-rock drummer Bill Bruford in the spring of 2001. Bill Bruford played in progressive rock juggernauts Yes and King Crimson and fronts his own British jazz group Earthworks. Chris and Bill discuss the continuing progression of the Earthworks group and the British jazz scene, his status with King Crimson and frank comments about why he quit Yes. Of special note is a discussion of Bruford's drum-duet B'BOOM with Pat Mastelotto, a high point in the King Crimson live set and inspired by Max Roach.
Chris Comer has interviewed other members of Yes, King Crimson and groups associated with progressive jazz and rock music on his radio show. You can find a list of interviews at Chris Comer's website, including broadcasts with Adrian Belew, Jon Anderson, Steve Howe and others.
The world of jazz is a musical space with a complex history and haunting appeal--a space to revisit and celebrate. It’s that
amazing moment when you hear a really great song you haven't heard in years and you still know the tune and every word.
