    New instrumental music from Jon Anderson

    Anyone happen to see these pop up on Youtube over the last couple of weeks? New instrumental "new age" kind of stuff apparently by Jon (I am assuming that is him playing?). One is 30+ minutes and the other 25+ minutes long. The only description is from Jon on one of the videos: "Hi Peeps...I'm home....dreaming.....playing.....music is everywhere...so many thoughts...ever grateful....ever thankful....ever blessed, thank you my Janee sweetest love of life, thank you my children sweetest dreams of life, never ending worlds of love and 'light'...jon"

    Michael Byrne had commented about this one: Jon sent over this wonderful piece of music during the week in many variations and i was blessed to be able to visualise it. A beautiful meditation for the senses. Originally called Piano Lessons, he spoke of Rachmaninoff and music. The kindest of souls and the most generous of heart, Jon Anderson remains one of the formost composers of our generation and beyond. Love & Light...Michael.

    There are similarities to Jon's Angel's Embrace release from a while back, although these are much more varied in both timbre and compositional dynamics. In fact, some of the melodic ideas in "No. 1" are directly lifted from Angel's Embrace.
    I'm holding out for the Wilson-mixed 5.1 super-duper walletbuster special anniversary extra adjectives edition.

    I really like his Angel's Embrace album, one of the few JA albums that I actually do like since Olias, although no doubt that he had a lot of 'help' on this. Very peaceful, meditative and healing for the mind.

    I've listened a lot to the first one. It's demo-y in many ways, but also a very ambitious piece of music. This is Anderson trying to be Sibelius, with themes and variation. Interesting stuff.

    I'm enjoying this 'release' more and more: great stuff. I've ripped the audio from YouTube to .mp3 so I can listen on the go easily.

    I wonder if this is all part of a "cleaning house" on Jon's part, even though he spends some of it revisiting earlier work (Toltec, Angel's Embrace, etc.) He even briefly includes the closing melodies from Olias of Sunhillow at the very end of Part 4.

    This is a very nice set
    And the code is a play, a play is a song, a song is a film, a film is a dance...
