Standard version of one of the most eagerly awaited releases of 2015 by the band featuring music icons Jon Anderson (YES) and violinist Jean Luc Ponty!

This is the stand-alone CD version of: ‘Better Late Than Never’, the new studio album taken from outstanding ‘live’ performances of the band captured in September 2014 at the Wheeler Opera House in Aspen, Colorado, but enhanced with innovative production.

The ANDERSON PONTY BAND has created some breathtaking new musical compositions.
'Better Late Than Never' also showcases rearrangements of classic YES hits like: ‘Owner Of A Lonely Heart’, ‘Roundabout’ and ‘Wonderous Stories’, as well as some of Jean Luc Ponty’s best beloved compositions, with Jon’s lyrical vocals and melodies enhancing the music and creating a very special and unique sound such as on: ‘Infinite Mirage’ a new song incorporating Jean Luc’s classic tune: ‘Mirage’.

YES’s original singer/songwriter for 35 years, Jon Anderson has had a successful solo career, which includes working with such notable music artists as Vangelis, Kitaro, Milton Nascimento and fellow YES star Rick Wakeman.
International violin superstar Jean Luc Ponty is a pioneer and undisputed master of his instrument in the arena of jazz and rock. He is widely regarded as an innovator who has applied his unique visionary spin that has expanded the vocabulary of modern music. Together these two music legends have formed a musical synergy that is unparalleled!

“A breakthrough feeling came as I sang with Jean Luc’s music, to be in a band again is very exciting on many levels, we will play and sing our way around the world and have fun, for music is pleasure, music is all that is.” - Jon Anderson

“Collaborating with Jon, who is such a creative singer/songwriter, is unlike any project I have done before. I knew that we had plenty of musical affinities to make it work, but the result is way beyond my expectations. It is also a lot of fun to reunite with these excellent musicians who played with me in the past. They really put their heart into this project and with Jon’s creative input we are not just rehashing the past, but giving a new life to the music we started developing decades ago.” - Jean Luc Ponty

The ANDERSON PONTY BAND also includes: Jamie Glaser (guitars - well known for his past work with Jean Luc Ponty, Chick Corea, Bryan Adams and Lenny White), Wally Minko (keyboards - virtuoso player and composer who has performed and recorded with many worldwide stars including Pink, Toni Braxton, Jean Luc Ponty, Tom Jones, Gregg Rolie and Barry Manilow), Baron Browne (bass – known for playing with Steve Smith, Billy Cobham and Jean Luc Ponty) and Rayford Griffin (drums / percussion – known for his contributions to the Stanley Clarke Band, George Duke, Jean Luc Ponty and Michael Jackson). The band visit the music created by Jon Anderson and Jean Luc Ponty over the years with new arrangements, virtuosi performances and revitalized energy.

Jon originally approached Jean Luc with the idea of working together as far back as the 1980's. Now 30 years later the dream has finally come to fruition! In support of the new release there is a world tour currently in the works.
