U.K.Z. is an international progressive rock band, that was formed in 2007 by keyboardist/violinist Eddie Jobson, who had played in U.K.. The band also features former King Crimson guitarist Trey Gunn. Eddie Jobson started his professional career with Curved Air, Roxy Music and Frank Zappa. Later in the 1970s, he was a member of the band U.K., initially with King Crimson alumni John Wetton and Bill Bruford, plus Allan Holdsworth. The band later consisted of Jobson, Wetton and Terry Bozzio. After U.K., and a short period with Jethro Tull, Jobson went on to solo projects, including releasing The Green Album under the project name Zinc. Jobson did not perform live for many years, focusing instead on soundtrack work. Attempts at a UK reunion failed. The Legacy project began life as a planned U.K. reunion, but morphed into a Jobson solo work, with Aaron Lippert, former vocalist for Expanding Man, lined up to handle vocals, replacing Wetton. However, the project subsequently stalled and was abandoned. The UKZ name references both UK and Zinc. Jobson is again joined by a King Crimson alumnus in Trey Gunn, while Machacek and Minnemann have both previously worked with Bozzio. The new band was announced in October 2007, with first studio effort, Radiation, released on 24 March 2009. « hide
