When Jon Anderson, the singer from British progressive rock band Yes, and electric-jazz-violin innovator Jean-Luc Ponty play together, their collaboration makes immediate sense. Anderson calls it spiritual. The Anderson Ponty Band combines music from both of them — Anderson has written words to Ponty's instrumentals — and it soars.

On this page, hear performances from an October concert, as well as a conversation with the two longtime players.
