Jon Anderson + Rick Wakeman - The Living Tree

Artist: Jon Anderson + Rick Wakeman
P: 2010
2010 studio album from two former members of Prog Rock legends Yes: vocalist Jon Anderson and keyboardist Rick Wakemen. The songs are beautiful and moving. You will want to listen to this again and again. It seems to have a healing power. Reminiscent of Jon's work with Vangelis and his solo album, "Change We Must".

Jon Anderson + Stolt - Invention of Knowledge

Artist: Jon Anderson + Roine Stolt
P: 2016
Jon Anderson at the top of his game here. He is in his 70's and he is still able to write, and sing, these great epic songs. Very spiritual and metaphysical topics. In nine songs he takes you on a magical ride of words and music that take you to the very center of your soul.
Jon Anderson teams up with The Flower King's Roine Stolt for the most transcendent and brilliant volume of Yes-music in quite some time, an unexpected sequel (of sorts) to "Tales from Topographic Oceans"!
How is this "Yes-music"? With Chris Squire now jamming in the great beyond, the classic Yes line-up is lost to eternity. Given that Anderson's voice for this listener IS the voice of Yes, recent efforts by the current band have left me cold, unsatisfied. The recent output of The Flower Kings has also been a bit disappointing - no "Church of the Heart" in recent vintages. Somehow, none of this matters, as the meeting of these newly-met minds has brought forth this brilliance - Stolt and Anderson bring the musical best out of each other. The musicians, some fellow Flower Kings, recreate a musical landscape reminiscent of Yes' "Topographic" era, as Stolt fills in for Steve Howe admirably on guitar, the bass players both try to fill Squire's large shoes with fat Squire-esque bass lines, and the rest of the crew echo the contributions of Wakeman and White.
That's not to say this IS Yes, simply that it sounds like Yes. Stolt's talents as a musician and producer have risen to the task. Given the transcendent nature of the lyrical content, it seems somehow right that it should sound like it leaps from where "Topographic" left off. There's also power here - Anderson's mystical lyrics spoke directly to this listener in uncanny synchronicity, as if answering a deep and involved conversation held the night before. All in all, better than I could have ever hoped for. A welcome new addition to this prog lover's music library!

Jon Anderson - Deseo

Artist: Jon Anderson

I know how odd Jon sounds on his solo albums but this is just beyond all oddness ever created. And yet somehow its smart and just alive with sound that makes you feel good.

Jon Anderson - In the City of Angels

Artist: Jon Anderson
P: 1988
Jon made a album of Love Songs,its just that simple, and who better to do that than JON ANDERSON. Many of the musicians and songwriters on this album were members of Toto so there is an 80's Rock sheen on most of the songs. However, if you're a fan of Anderson even at his most "twee", this is an enjoyable album.

Jon Anderson - Olias of Sunhillow

Artist: Jon Anderson
P: 1975
This is an album where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. It holds together beautifully and can be a very uplifting experience. The lyrics also deserve a mention. Jon Anderson has created a story in which there is no interpersonal conflict and yet has a hero. While this may seem to be a yawnworthy concept based on hippy idealism.
This is a must have for any Yes fan, but beware. While Jon Anderson's other albums do have their good moments, none come anywhere near this in terms of quality.

Jon Anderson - Song of Seven

Artist: Jon Anderson
P: 1980 / 1996
Jon did this Album after he left Yes in 1980 during their DRAMA phase and it's good thing that he did. This is one of the best solo offerings from Jon (besides OLIAS and his newer works) and the music just fills you full of energy, hope, belief and allows you to just float downstream. There are one or two almost pop type cuts, however they don't get as "commercialized" as the music on Jon's CITY OF ANGELS, however the rest of the LP seems to be a merging of YES music with Jon's later "spiritual focused" music. The LP ends with the beautiful 11 minute title song which is so enchanting it can not be put into words. If you are a YES fan this is a Jon album that you will definitely enjoy. Jon has been blessing us with his musical talent for over 30 years.

Jon Anderson - Survival + Other Stories

Artist: Jon Anderson
P: 2011
"Survival & other stories" is a unique collaboration of Jon Anderson with musicians that responded to his website request "Musicians wanted...send me your music..." posted four years ago. Ever the spirited innovator and adopter of new technology, Jon pushes the boundaries of music making in the 21st century. All songs were worked on and recorded via the internet, with his collaborators recording in their own home studies around the world and Jon adding his unique vocals and the final production in his home studio in San Luis Obispo. The results are superb and represent easily one of the best works of his over 40 year long career.
Jon sings with renewed energy having survived long standing illnesses and near death experiences in the past four years. The songs present a fresh perspective of his positive outlook on life, love and the spiritual future of the human race. The freshness in the songs is also created by the variety of musical styles that the different musicians bring in. Simple acoustic guitar or piano supported songs ("Effortlessly"; "Love & Understanding"; "Cloudz") mix with fully orchestrated pieces ("Incoming"; "Just one man"), world music ("Sharpening the Sword") and modern pop ("New New World"). "Making music is easy" he writes in the liner notes and he shows us in the effortless mastering of various musical styles and influences in this outstanding collection of songs held together by his voice and spirit.

Jon Anderson - The More You Know

Artist: Jon Anderson
P: 1998
This sounded like Anderson's earlier solo project, IN THE CITY OF ANGELS. But more R&B with a world music feel. Certain world cuts sound like something PETER GABRIEL would do. If you love Anderson and you like soul and world music, it won't take repeated listening to get this record into YOUR HEART.

Jon Anderson - Toltec

Artist: Jon Anderson
P:
1996
We are seeing, once again, the thoughtful side of Jon Anderson. The melodic harmonies are ever present. This is vintage Jon. Soaring vocal harmonies (Quick Words/Talk Talk), very ethnic and introspective (Good Day Morning), and the absolute best hymn song Jon has ever sung (Ave Verum Corpus by Mozart).

Jon Anderson - Tour of the Universe

Artist: Jon Anderson
P: 2005
The "Tour of the Universe" DVD is so many wonderful things, it's hard to describe.
First, it's basically a new Jon Anderson solo album, as most of the songs are new releases. And many are quite good, with the magical celestial vibe we know and love from Jon. As for the mandatory Yessongs, some are given refreshing new arrangements.
Second, it's a magical visual journey. Jon posted an advertisement on his web site look for computer animators, and he found some great ones. Many of the songs have their own visual accompaniment. They vary a lot in style, and some are quite excellent.
Third, the bonus section features the two mini-lectures on the golden ratio (phi) and the golden section in music, which are fascinating. While the closed-minded might see them as out of place on a music DVD, the fact is Jon has been turning people on to classical composers, authors, filmmakers, new ideas, etc. for years.
