Jon Anderson has a voice as pure as sunshine. Every note he sings seems to radiate with sincerity and his music can make you feel like you are in touch with the ineffable. In 2008, that voice was nearly silenced by near fatal health problems, but today Jon Anderson is back sounding revitalized.

In fact, in the last several years Jon's output has been nothing short of amazing. He has released a solo album (Survival and Other Stories), a collaboration with keyboardist Rick Wakeman (The Living Tree), a live album documenting The Living Tree tour, an epic-length single (Open), and a new digital single with keyboardist Marco Sabiu. Oh Yeah, Anderson also turned out several tracks for a soundtrack to the film The Highest Pass, a collaboration with composer Michael Mollura. This is an impressive phase for Jon.

The Anderson/Subiu partnership has yielded the digital download Limitless Lives/Satellite, which finds Jon in fine voice. The music here seems halfway between the inspired musicality of Jon & Vangelis and Jon's AOR phase (City of the Angels). Limitless Lives is commercial fare, but it also but deeply melodic and Jon sounds as inspiring as ever. Satellite is an instrumental piece, but it reaches musical heights too. Sabui is a tasteful pianist and the orchestral effect he achieves here is both intoxicating and uplifting. This is music of great potency.

In the 1980's Jon left Yes to partner with Vangelis, which led to an incredible series of albums with the Greek keyboardist. Today, Jon finds himself out of Yes, but he is clearly enjoying a musical renaissance nonetheless. This collaboration has some of the same ingredients; Jon's heavenly voice and a keyboardist with a deeply melodic imagination. I hope we'll be hearing more from these two.
