4 stars The title of this album talks by itself: "Music for piano and drums". Despite the 2 musicians involved played for Yes, this record has NOTHING to do with the progressive rock band. The music here consists in sometimes lively & joyful sometimes dark & enigmatic rhythmic and/or delicate piano with a strong jazz influence combined with absolute jazz drums! Bill Bruford has a COMPLETELY different style here to what he used to show us in the past: for the first time, he really focuses on the cymbals arrangements; and he succeeds EXTREMELY well! Patrick Moraz is really an OUTSTANDING piano player, and he clearly shows it here! He can play VERY fast and scattered significant parts, and his piano has a really pleasant, rich & colorful sustained sound. The OUTSTANDING side 2 is much more catchy and accessible, and it remains VERY elaborated and complex. The side one is more experimental, although is still remains very good and structured. We have the proof here that Bruford with Yes does not use all his talent...Moraz & Bruford together is a WINNING combination!

Rating: 4.5 stars
