Yes vocalist John Anderson and renowned jazz fusion violinist Jean Luc Ponty first talked about recording together over 30 years ago. Now those discussions have become reality on the duo’s new CD Better Late Than Never.
Accompanied by a band of superb musicians whose credits include work with Ponty, Stanley Clarke, Chick Corea, George Duke, Pink and Michael Jackson, Anderson and Ponty revisit some of their own classics as well as delivering new material.tour-banner-apb-bltn
“A breakthrough feeling came as I sang with Jean Luc’s music” says Anderson. “To be in a band again is very exciting on many levels, we will play and sing our way around the world and have fun, for music is pleasure, music is all that is.”
Better Late than Never features Yes classics like Owner Of A Lonely Heart, Roundabout and Wondrous Stories.  In addition, Anderson brings lyrics and vocals to some of Ponty’s best-loved compositions.
“Collaborating with Jon who is such a creative singer/songwriter is unlike any project I have done before.” Ponty explains. “I knew that we had plenty of musical affinities to make it work, but the result is way beyond my expectations. It is also a lot of fun to reunite with these excellent musicians who played with me in the past, they really put their heart in this project and with Jon’s creative input we are not just rehashing the past but giving a new life to the music we started developing decades ago.”
Better Late Than Never will be released as a CD/DVD Deluxe Edition and a standalone CD version on25th September and will be accompanied by a world tour.
