The ever-busy Geoff Downes has just completed work on a new album with Asia, even as he begins recording another with Yes. Significant changes mark both projects, as the keyboardist moves forward without key collaborators in guitarist Steve Howe and producer Trevor Horn.
Coming off 1972's classic 'Close to the Edge,' it seemed as if Yes could do no wrong. 'Tales of Topographic Oceans,' a bloated concept album which created so much tension that is forced keyboardist Rick Wakeman out of the band, proved otherwise.
After four decades into their singular career, Yes have been enjoying an unlikely renaissance. Back in 2011, the iconic prog-rockers released 'Fly From Here,' their excellent 20th studio LP -- and their first since parting ways with founding singer Jon Anderson.
