    new jon anderson interview

    1. Hello Jon, it's a pleasure to talk to you. Please say hello to Brazil.I love love, love Brazil, with all my heart.

    2. So we learn that you're working on a new solo album. This is very exciting. What can we expect from it and how is it developing?You're doing great! I am very busy writing, singing, composing and living a full and serene life with my beautiful and wonderful wife Janee.
    The new album will be released this summer. I think we'll release some songs on YouTube before the release. It will be called "1,000 Hands", relative to the number of people touching it. Many really amazing artists have worked on this project. The song started 28 years ago in Big Bear, just south of Los Angeles, and the reason it took so long is a long story ...

    3. I need to compliment your Anderson / Stolt project album, which is very interesting. Roine Stolt told us that a second album is on the way. Can you tell us how things are and how this project started?We have a special way of working, which is totally over the internet. I send you the songs and he creates a network of musical ideas based on my creations. So this helps me add more vocal ideas. He is a master of production and a great guitarist, singer and producer. Our relationship is unique and things are gradually happening.

    4. Jon, you and the rest of the members of YES Featuring ARW are shedding tears of happiness at the fans in every performance. How do you feel about reaching that level of the fans' connection to your music and how you are feeling when you play with your old friends again?As you said, "all of us" are fans. We love the music we play and love to create ideas and adventures for everyone who understands the music of Yes. It never grows old, and with Rick and Trevor, it really sounds renewed every show. We have a video coming out next month from a show we recorded at Apollo in Manchester, UK.

    5. Is there any plan for an album with new songs from YES Featuring ARW? Are you recording together?It's taking so long to record new songs. Sometimes music is the master and my mantra is: "it will happen when it happens."

    6. With all these projects in the oven, it is remarkable to see you creating more and more for the music. After all the albums and projects you participated in, what inspires you to continue making music and tours?I sing almost every day, make new songs, compose for orchestra and choir, and write stories. Everything to be part of the Zamran world (a project that Jon has been working on for years as a sequel to his first solo album "Olias of Sunhillow"), which will be ready when it's ready. It's a continuous concept of music forever, creating information and stories with beautiful visuals.

    7. What about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Who had the idea of ​​recruiting Geddy Lee for the bass and how was the atmosphere between the two sides of Yes that night?All of us were "OK". Geddy was so happy to play with us ... I think Trevor got the idea. It was a very special night, never to be forgotten. We are very proud to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    8. And now, the million dollar question: do you see any possibility of joining the two sides of Yes again or do you think it's best to leave everything as it is?At this moment I believe it is not possible. But I would like it to happen one day. It's happened before, so we'll never know ...

    9. Jon, YES covered all aspects of music throughout his long career. The decade of classical and progressive rock from the 70's, the electronic wave / synthpop / new wave of the 80's, and the pop of the 90's. Could you tell us what's your favorite Yes album of every decade?For me, the 70's were pure adventure: "Close to the Edge";
    80s: pure fame, "90125";
    90s: confusion, "Magnification";
    2000s: happy to be alive and making music;
    Now the next ...

    10. With a successful career and so many projects, is there an artist that you would like to work and that has not yet been possible?My new album - "1,000 Hands" - allowed me to work with Ian Anderson, Corea Chick, Billy Cobham, Chris Squire and Alan White, and Jean Luc Ponty, Zap Mama ... and many others. I would also love to sing with Stevie Wonder.

    11. Sometimes we like something so much, that we say phrases such as "I wish I had created this text" or "I wish I had written this book". Thinking this way, which disc do you like so much that would love to have it created?(Jon gets excited). I wish I had written the Sibelius Seventh Symphony.

    12. Jon, thank you very much for your attention and I wish you success with Yes Featuring ARW, the new album and future projects. This last space is yours. Brazil wants to see you here as soon as possible. Thank you!Janee and I love Brazil absurdly. When people talk, they sing. Much love and light for all.

    Re: new jon anderson interview

    Is Jon actually saying that Chris will be on the 1.000 hands album in some shape or form? If so, that would be really something!

    And Alan? And Ponty? I think things went wrong in translation or in Jon’s Cosmic Mind.

    1,000 Hands reportedly consists of recordings made over a lengthy period of time that Jon is now finishing, so all of the named musicians could in fact appear.

    For me, even more so if Chick, Ponty and Cobham are on the same track. Fusion geek out!

    Hope it’s not just some Korean chick as the interview suggests...

    LOL no - it's an email exchange so Jon had a moment of dyslexia.

    new songs from YES Featuring ARW? Are you recording together?

    new music from ARW is definitely not coming for quite a while

    It would, definitely. But Eagle Rock hasn't announced it yet and when they do, I think it will be two months out unless they have a special agreement. So I'm still expecting it will be August, but I hope I'm wrong!

    If Alan White and Chris Squire are indeed on it, it confirms what I had been thinking that Jon will in fact be recycling some of the Uzlot 90s recordings...

    Well Ponty, Cobham that is 2/5 of one Mahavishnu lineup...

    People should know Mahavishnu Orchestra had their own band troubles with the most well known line-up (which had the two before mentioned in it)

    Does anyone know whether Anderson would require White's (re)approval to use a session he was on unless participation essentially means agreement for use ?

    Actually, the violinist in the first Mahavishnu (with Cobham on drums) was Jerry Goodman. Ponty played in the second Mahavishnu where the drummer was Narada Michael Walden. Both great bands!
