Wakeman, Rick

Richard Christopher Wakeman (born 18 May 1949) is an English keyboard player, composer, and songwriter. He is known for being the keyboardist for progressive rock band Yes, as a keyboardist for Ozzy Osbourne, his solo career, and later as a contributor to the BBC Television comedy show Grumpy Old Men.

He had classical piano training and was a pioneer in the use of electronic keyboards and in the use of a rock band in combination with orchestra and choir. He hosted a regular radio show on Planet Rock until December 2010. Throughout his solo career, Wakeman has produced over 100 solo albums that have sold more than 50 million copies. In November 2010, Wakeman was awarded the Spirit of Prog award at the annual Marshall Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards.

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".

Rick Wakeman - Access all Areas  (DVD + CD)

Artist: Rick Wakeman
P: 2015
Deluxe two disc (CD + PAL/Region 2 DVD) live release. The concert was originally recorded for broadcast on ITV and released here for the first time. The high quality recording has been remastered and are featured both on a DVD and audio CD alongside extended notes, new interviews, imagery and memorabilia. Keyboard wizard Rick Wakeman has enjoyed at least three careers - early-Seventies sessionman, the Caped Crusader of progressive giants Yes and solo star responsible for such epic albums as The Six Wives of Henry VIII, Journey To The Centre Of The Earth and The Myths And Legends Of King Arthur And The Knights Of The Round Table. He's also written books and become a well-known small-screen personality. This DVD and CD package of a 1990 broadcast in the Bedrock TV series combines many of these facets, featuring titles from all his biggest solo sellers in a virtuoso performance. Backed by Tony Fernandez (drums) and David Paton (bass), Rick gives his nine-keyboard rig the ultimate workout and clearly enjoys himself: 'It was good fun at the time. Says it all, really!' he says on his website. A must for prog, keyboard and Wakeman fans alike.

'All Things Bright and Beautiful', Amazing Grace , 'Jerusalem', Morning Has Broken and 'Abide With Me' are just some of the hymns featured, which have served both historic and important roles in worldwide Christian communities, and in fact all walks of life. Released as a 2 Disc DVD CD Collection to coincide with 2007 s Easter festivities, Amazing Grace also highlights the cherished title tune, originally penned by John Newton in the 1770 s. The hymn is subject to somewhat of a commemoration this year to mark the 200th Anniversary of the Abolition of Slavery and its roots are firmly linked to the events that led to an abolishment of the slave trade within the British Empire in 1807. Amazing Grace', like many of the pieces featured on the album have proved to reveal an unprecedented impact on our society and it continues...

Rick Wakeman - Return to the Centre of the Earth

Artist: Rick Wakeman
P: 1999
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of his bestselling 1974 album Journey to the Centre of the Earth, keyboard maestro Rick Wakeman has created a conceptual opus that serves as both impressive sequel and ambitious revisitation to his original premise. Wakeman himself has continued the Jules Verne narrative, delivered here with flawless thespian diction by Patrick Stewart, and his music draws together a seamless cohesion of the London Symphony Orchestra, the English Chamber Choir, and guest vocalists including Ozzy Osbourne, Bonnie Tyler, Justin Hayward, Trevor Rabin, Katrina Leskanich, and Tony Mitchell. Wakeman can be accused of overindulgence in both arrangement and production, and, frankly, his talent as a lyricist leaves much to be desired. But even when this bravura effort slips into heavy-handed pretension (which fortunately isn't often), it's great to hear Journey reconceived with the state-of-the-art recording technology. Whether it's heard in its entirety or with music and narration tracks isolated, this is a dynamic recording that grows richer with each listening. Sure, it's likely to appeal primarily to Wakeman's fans and receptive converts, but overall this is a journey well worth taking.

Rick Wakeman - Rhapsodies

Artist: Rick Wakeman
P:
1979 / 2015
Real Gone Music concludes its survey of Rick Wakeman s solo recordings for the A&M label with yet another first-time-on-CD-in-the-U.S. release, this time of his last album for the label, a double-LP from 1979. Unlike many of his other solo records, Rhapsodies consists of short, largely improvisational pieces (17 in all for a 2-LP set that s practically Ramones-style for this composer!) that are brimming with the whimsy and prodigious chops we ve come to expect from the erstwhile Yes keyboardist. On the lighter side are the opening track, Pedra da Gavea, which sets keyboard licks and processed vocals to none other than a Bo Diddley beat, and Swan Lager, which arranges one of the main themes from Swan Lake as a reggae number! But Wakeman s closing solo piano take on Summertime is nothing short of gorgeous, and reminds us that, lurking behind the prog rock god/clown façade, was a sensitive and fully mature artist...when he wanted to be. Otherwise, enjoy the dizzying array of musical ideas and motifs from the flying fingers of Mr. Wakeman, with artful annotation by Bill Kopp. Produced by Tony Vischonti of David Bowie fame.
