Jon And Vangelis - Short Stories download album

Short Stories is the debut album by Jon and Vangelis, the collaborative effort between Jon Anderson of the progressive rock band Yes and electronic music pioneer Vangelis. This was not the first time that the two had worked together: Vangelis had auditioned to be Rick Wakeman's replacement in Yes in 1974, but the role was given to Patrick Moraz. In 1975, Jon Anderson sang on "So Long Ago So Clear" from Heaven and Hell.

Complete your Jon And Vangelis collection. Their first Album as a duo, Jon had provided vocals and instruments on a few Vangelis solo albums over the years prior to this. I Hear You Now' was the only single released from this album.

Short Stories is a music studio album recording by JON & VANGELIS (Prog Related/Progressive Rock) released in 1979 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. Jon Anderson and Vangelis fashion an album that only ' So Long Ago, So Clear' from Vangelis's Heaven and Hell album could get close to in terms of excellent output. Curious Electric' is a superb opener mainly instrumental where finally Jon Anderson comes in to remind us he is inside a TV tube watching Match Of The Day!

Short Stories is the debut album by Jon and Vangelis, the collaborative effort between Jon Anderson of the prog rock band Yes and electronic music pioneer Vangelis. Lyrics By Jon Anderson.

The pair returns to that song's successful formula of combining Anderson's otherworldly voice with Vangelis' pithy melodies in a few spots on their debut together, notably for the popular single "I Hear You Now" (which recalls Vangelis' "To the Unknown Man") and the middle section of "Far Away in Bagaad. Otherwise, Short Stories favors amorphous arrangements that feature wisps of melody and little more (a style that has its precedent on Yes' Tormato rather than their own solo work to date)
