Better Late Than Never
You know how some Jon solo albums have good material but sound kind of stiff because he's using all MIDI or, like the Wakeman thing, the arrangements are too sparse? Being partnered with Ponty and his fusion band really fixes that. Kind of like how 'Song of Seven' and 'Animation' worked so well because he had a solid band behind him. Moreso, even. These are great players with their own ideas to contribute - not just Ponty. It really feels like a full band that Jon just happens to front. The Yes covers are done tastefully but it's really all about the originals. Just the right amount of prog, World, fusion, and Jon-ness.
