VIDEO: Back to the Beginning by Bruford

Hi everyone,

Here's another great track from the jazz fusion/jazz rock explosion of the mid to late 1970s. This is "Back to the Beginning" by Bruford from their debut album, Feels Good to Me, released in 1978. This track features the unique vocal style of Annette Peacock. You can read more about the album and the band below the video. Again, feedback and opinions are welcome!

The following information on the album Feels good to me by Bruford is from Wikipedia:

Feels Good to Me is the debut solo album by the British drummer Bill Bruford (ex- King Crimson and Yes). The band Bruford grew out of the line-up assembled for this album, which was released in August 1978.

Led by drummer Bill Bruford, the album also features guitarist Allan Holdsworth and John Goodsall, bassist Jeff Berlin, keyboardist Dave Stewart, and ECM fl├╝gelhorn stalwart Kenny Wheeler. He also enlisted singer and songwriter Annette Peacock.

Musically, the album is an extremely electronic affair that does not sound anything at all like the early Canterbury sound. In an attempt to merge new wave and progressive rock into a new genre, the record actually pioneers the sort of sound that would later be picked up by acts like Missing Persons. The album is also considered a "vanguard of progressive jazz improvised music".
