Austrian review of The Living Tree In Concert Part One

The two legends YES Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman have been 2010, “The LivingTree” album released. Then it went tremendously reduced to pure minimalism if we like, on Anderson’s unique voice and Rick Wakeman piano, that’s it. Have except that the two also various YES Classics (four to be exact) installed in their 2010 live set recorded in Englandwith – not much different it is with “The Living Tree In Concert Part One”.

But even here only dominated the piano himself and Mr. Anderson, at times dreamy deep under the skin of two continuous progressive rock legends, two veterans, two exceptionalmusicians, who – as you said, at least – are blind. Apart from the “Living Tree” material (stand out in which the two great “Morning Star” and “23/24/11”), it is mainly the “Fragile”rag “Southside of the Sky,” which this deliberate reduction to the essentials did damn good.

By the way: On the basis of the subtitle may be speculated to a decoupling of this second live tour, rumored to be with material from the U.S. foray by Anderson / Wakeman.
