The Lonely Bears biography
A very celebrated jazz-rock combo back in the early 90s, THE LONELY BEARS brought new airs of power and color to the genre. It was actually a super-group of renowned veterans - Terry BOZZIO on drums/percussion, Tony HYMAS on keyboards, Tony COE on saxes/clarinet and Hugh BURNS on guitars. The band's inception took place after the completion of JEFF BECK's "Guitar Shop" (recorded in 1989, eventually awarded with a 1990's Grammy for Best instrumental Rock Performance), where HYMAS and BOZZIO had served as support musicians. The two teamed up in early 1990 to create some music of their own. Soon after, they recruited their two fellow musicians, and so the ball got rolling. The result from this fruition of creative minds and accomplished performers turned into an eclectic approach to jazz-rock, combining fusion, ethnic, world beat and progressive undertones, with a high degree of improvisational expansions and a strong sense of originality.

The band released three albums, the namesake debut plus "Injustice" and "The Bears Are Running": the former is based on the first few sessions, while the latter two combine recordings from various sessions in different years. All three albums have been re-released between 1999 and 2000: there is also a "Best of", not too bad for a band that didn't become a real celebrity but was really celebrated.

Why this artist must be listed in :
