    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? How did I miss this announcement?!?!

    Jon Anderson (Yes) is forming a band with Jean-Luc Ponty (Zappa, Mahavishnu, solo), Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater, Liquid Tension Experiment), Baron Browne (Billy Cobham, Kevin Eubanks) and Rayford Griffin (Stanley Clarke).


    It's like some prog/fusion fanboy's wet dream!

    Well... cool. I hope it doesn't suck. Sometimes the chemistry is there and sometimes not,however good the people are. Worth watching anyway.

    A lesson I learned all too well when I used to buy jazz LPs based on who was listed in the credits.

    Another fan of Baron Browne here. Saw him most recently with Steve Smith and Vital Information.
