Does anybody know the albums Bill Bruford and Patrick Moraz recorded as a piano/drums duo (no other instruments)?

I think there were two: Music for Piano and Drums, and Flags. I think Bruford's label is about to re-release them.

You can get Bruford updates on Henry Potts' excellent website: http://www.bondegezou.demon.co.uk/wh_now.htm

Here's a quote from the site:

Winterfold has re-released the two Moraz/Bruford albums. Music for Piano and Drums (WFVP001CD) is remastered with three bonus tracks: "Blue Brains", "Flags", "Hazy". Flags (WFVP002CD) is also remastered with three bonus tracks: "Eastern Sundays", "Children's Concerto", "Galatea". All six bonus tracks over both releases come from a 1985 live show in Tokyo.

Yep, there were two, and we have them on vinyl. Not everybodies cup of tea though; some Yes fans will be deeply disappointed.

music for piano and drums  is a very solid album: I like the Moraz's jazzy style on piano!

Great exploritory albums. It's releases like these that set Bruford apart from the average drummer. He doesn't fit neatly into any box.  

 

What about the Bruford Levin Upper Extremities albums... more incredible sonic excursions.

I have Music For Piano and Drums but it's only had a couple of listens to date. I've not had a chance to concentrate on it the way I'd like to - thanks for reminding me to give it another go!

Actually, the second Moraz-Bruford album has one synthesizer in it, besides the grand piano, while Bruford plays additional electronic and acoustic percusson besides the Tama drum kit. It's stronger than the first album. Generally speaking, bot hare highly reccommended to jazz-rock fans, regardless of enjoying prog or not.

I only know the tracks on the Masterstrokes compilation, which really impressed me, and on the strength of the recommendations fom BaldFriede, Danbo and Greenback (to say nothing of m'young friend TP) I'll try to pick the albums up soon.

Issued in the last 12 months on CD Bruford's own label Winterfold and available through the UK label Voiceprint/Blueprint - as are the excellent Bruford albums. The Summerfold label is supposed to be devoted to Bill Bruford's new projects. The 3 Winterfold albums I've obtained also include a second CD of an interview with Bruford - with music samples- explaining what the two labels are about. BB has clearly wrested copyright back from EG Records - Robert Fripp had big problems recovering King Crimson recordings for his own Discipline label from EG - although EG did actual release the only CD of  Loose Tubes, (their first two albums still only can be found on vinyl).

Hey Moraz fans! Did you know he was member of a progressive brazillian band in the middle of seventies? Check some unreleased songs from Vímana: http://www.progarchives.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=10440& amp;KW=patrick+moraz
