Fanfare for the Common Man (2006)

Ok, a slight departure. From the US leg of the 2006 Asia tour, here is an incredible version of ELP’s “Fanfare for the Common Man.” What makes this great (and qualifies it for inclusion here) is Steve’s soloing in the extended jam, where he also trades solos with Geoff Downes in a jam reminiscent of Yes’ live versions of “South Side of the Sky.” Listen carefully for a quick tip of the hat to “Close to the Edge,” and if you were wondering where Steve’s tone has gone in recent years, look no further than this. Recorded at the Keswick Theater in Glenside, PA, on September 13, 2006.
