Anderson Ponty Band | Music Hall Detroit
Got to cover Anderson Ponty Band at the Detroit Music Hall for the Performing Arts this week. Kinda exciting to see Jean_Luc again as I am one of his followers. To see him paired up with Jon Anderson was a treat as the two had been talking about doing the project for several years and now it has finally come to life. The "Better Late Than Never" tour has started after a fundraising effort supported by devoted fans of the project.
"“Better Late Than Never” also showcases rearrangements of classic YES hits like “Owner Of A Lonely Heart”, “Roundabout” and “Wonderous Stories”, as well as some of Jean Luc Ponty's beloved compositions, with Jon's lyrical vocals and melodies enhancing the music and creating a very special and unique sound such as “Infinite Mirage” a new song incorporating Jean Luc's classic tune “Mirage”.
YES's original singer/songwriter for 35 years, Jon Anderson has had a successful solo career, which includes working with such notable music artists as Vangelis, Kitaro, and Milton Nascimento. International violin superstar Jean Luc Ponty is a pioneer and undisputed master of his instrument in the arena of jazz and rock. He is widely regarded as an innovator who has applied his unique visionary spin that has expanded the vocabulary of modern music. Together these two music legends have formed a musical synergy that is unparalleled! "
