On the 4th February we took a solid four hour drive into the Rockies to watch JA play his solo gig in Aspen, Colorado. It was great to see him play, mostly unplugged in acoustic and played many passages of Yes material from the first album, Tales from Topographic Oceans ( Nu som du soleil a frequent reference point), a few songs off his most recent solo, Survival and other stories, and last but not least a few gems off the crowds favorite....Olias Of Sunhillow. JA received a carved wooden replica of the Olias signature which he placed face up on the floor in front of him as he played the night away.
 
This was a different experience for me having seen Yes live in Edinburgh in 1998. Jon Anderson looked to me to be quite frail yet he still mustered up all the elven celestial light that seems to surround him and his music. His voice is as strong as ever and his closer Roundabout had the enthused crowd standing and clapping in approval. A definite thumbs up if anyone is planning to see him on stage solo in an unplugged format. Hard to believe he has been so ill recently so it was a real privelige to see him live on stage again in 2012.
