2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 11-song performance from 1984 is undeniable evidence that Liz Story has established herself as one of the most distinctive composers and pianists of our time.

More economical than Keith Jarrett, more florid and changeable than Winston, Liz Story finds a compelling middle ground between jazz harmony and classical technique, outside improv and sturdy songcraft, complex performance and inner stillness - an audiovisual delight

His 'Road Trip' reads like the Great American Novel, and while Bruce unquestionably remains amongst the most respected performers alive today and undoubtedly has much more great work to come, having already notched up 4 decades of incredible music and quite probably the best live shows ever performed, he has already achieved far more than even he could have ever hoped for
