Bruford - Gradually Going Tornado
This is my description text 1. It can support html.

Bill Bruford was a founding member of Yes through the years 1968-1972 and whilst with the band recorded five albums each of which was more successful than its predecessor. When Bill left Yes in 1972 following the release of Close To The Edge, there were those who concluded that he'd taken leave of his senses. But it proved an astute musical move. As King Crimson's enigmatic leader Robert Fripp decided to split the band after three tumultuous albums and move on to other projects, Bill moved to playing countless sessions and was also briefly a member of the bands National Health, Gong and more famously, Genesis, where he played alongside Phil Collins who had just stepped up to the microphone following the departure of Peter Gabriel. Bill was the drummer in the live Genesis situation and was with the band for the majority of 1976 while the band toured their album A Trick Of The Tail.

Following his debut album Feels Good To Me and its successor One of a Kind, Bruford continued to produce intelligent, intricately crafted and technically impressive music on this, the third in a four album series by his astonishing group, Bruford. Gradually Going Tornado also features a shift in the sound with the addition of guitarist John Clark in for the departed Allan Holdsworth. Vocal duties on this album are also handled by bassist Jeff Berlin, leading the band in a different but exciting direction.

Key tracks on Gradually Going Tornado include Joe Frazier, Q.E.D and Palewell Park.
