On 11th September 2017, Virgil Howe - the youngest son of Yes guitarist Steve Howe – passed away unexpectedly at the age of 41. Yes announced the immediate cancellation of the remaining dates of the Yestival tour. Their duo album ‘Nexus’ had been completed before the tour started and was due out this year. Steve Howe has decided to continue with these plans.
On ‘Nexus’, Steve handled acoustic, electric & steel guitars whereas Virgil took care of bass, drums and all keys. The results are beautiful, diverse compositions varying between neoclassical elements, dreamy jazz, straight forward grooves, and cinematic, spacey themes. ‘Nexus’ is an instrumental album that impresses with its feeling and moods and unites two musician‘s individual biographies and styles as a fascinating whole.
