If we're talking about the same book, it's an autobiography... so I dare say it's both approved and official.

Has anyone had a chance to read Bill Bruford's book ? I'm contemplating buying it but was wondering if it was a good read before doing so. Within the front cover, there's a posting to get one of two free CD samplers (one is called Winter, the other Summer). I seem to recall he has had these free CDs on offer a while back. I didn't get them then but am considering it now. Is/Was there a web site to go to in order to get them ? If so, can anyone pass along the URL ? Which of the two is better and are they all jazz or are there any rock tracks on them ? Any input would be appreciated.
My favorite movies (right now):
"Lost In Translation", "Mulholland Drive", "Pulp Fiction", "Sin City", "Buffalo '66", "Ghost World", "Apocolypse Now (Redux)", "Donnie Darko", "Raising Arizona", "Shawshank Redemption"

There's a review or sort of at the other side...

I think they are the same.

It was available at Bill Bruford own site. Try http://www.billbruford.com then go to online store. I think it's managed by DGM.

Winter is more jazz oriented (recent works) while Summer is more fusion (Earthworks), or the opposite I think... There are interviews between the tracks on both CDs.

It's the opposite. Winterfold covers the electric/fusion stuff, Summerfold is acoustic jazz.

This book should be at the top of your reading list if you want to impress your girl with your culinary skills.

The problem with Chinese semen is that once you've had some, you want some more 30 minutes later...
