Eddie Jobson's U-Z Project Hitting The Road


07/29/2009
.
(PR) Eddie Jobson's U-Z Project will be performing a brief series of exclusive East Coast and Midwest summer dates on the "Ultimate Zero Tour": Washington DC (August 17 - Jammin' Java); New York (August 18 - B.B. Kings); Boston (August 19 - Regent Theatre); Philadelphia (August 20 - North Star); Cleveland (August 21 - Beachland Ballroom); and Chicago (August 22 - Martyrs').

A live concert appearance by iconic musician Eddie Jobson is a rare event. As keyboardist, electric violinist, co-founder, producer, and principal writer of 'UK' [a group he formed with drummer Bill Bruford (Yes, Genesis, King Crimson), singer/bassist John Wetton (King Crimson, Asia), and then-unknown guitar phenom Allan Holdsworth], Jobson's studio and live concert performances were described as "stunning" and "dazzling.' The Boston Globe has called him "a music pioneer," Emmy magazine called him "a genius."

Eddie was previously well known as the teenage 'rock prodigy' with the early Roxy Music, and as Frank Zappa's right-hand-man on both keyboards and electric violin - replacing both Jean Luc Ponty and George Duke at the age of 21. After appearing on some 60 albums with many of the rock/fusion genre's top musicians, Mr. Jobson retired from both studio and live performance for more than 20 years until a recent unannounced appearance in Russia with King Crimson.

Now, Eddie has formed two new projects based on his original 'UK' concept: 'UKZ' - a five-piece contemporary rock band, currently receiving rave reviews for their "Radiation" EP and recent concert tour of Japan; and the newly-announced 'U-Z Project' - an instrumental band of extraordinary virtuosos from around the world, including Michael Jackson's former guitarist Greg Howe; stick player Michael Bernier (Stick Men); and TWO world renowned drummers, German drumming sensation Marco Minnemann (UKZ), and British drum legend Simon Phillips (Peter Gabriel, Jeff Beck, Mick Jagger, Toto).
