ProgJect – The Ultimate Prog Rock Expereience is the brainchild of drummer Jonathan Mover and came to fruition out of his childhood love of Prog. “Prog Rock is the reason I play drums,” Mover explains, “but by the time I turned pro, Prog in the classic sense was over. And, although I got to work with some Prog-associated artists–GTR (Steve Hackett and Steve Howe) and Marillion–my career took a decidedly different, though incredibly fortunate path, with artists such as Alice Cooper, Joe Satriani, Aretha Franklin, The Tubes, Shakira, Julian Lennon and others. That being said, I never lost my desire to play the Prog I grew up listening to.”

Bill Bruford is unusual in being both a celebrated drummer and a later-life scholar. Beginning with the progressive rock of Yes, King Crimson, Genesis and UK, Bill spent the last two decades of his career with his group Earthworks, showcasing the best of young British jazz. Voted into Modern Drummer magazine’s Hall of Fame (1990), Bill was named by Rolling Stone magazine as #16 Greatest Drummer of All Time (2016) and inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of ‘Yes’ (2017). Essential Bruford recordings include Close the Edge (Yes 1972), Red (King Crimson 1974), One of a Kind (Bruford 1979), Discipline (King Crimson 1980), Earthworks (Earthworks 1987), and The Sound of Surprise (Earthworks 2001). Straddling both jazz and rock, his work as a musician is well documented on CD and DVD at Summerfold and Winterfold Records and at www.billbruford.com . Bill retired from public performance in 2009 to study aspects of creativity and performance psychology.
