Feels Good to Me is the 1978 debut solo album by the British drummer Bill Bruford. The band Bruford grew out of the line-up assembled for this album. Led by drummer Bill Bruford, the album features guitarists Allan Holdsworth and John Goodsall, bassist Jeff Berlin, keyboardist Dave Stewart, and ECM flügelhorn stalwart Kenny Wheeler. He also enlisted singer and songwriter Annette Peacock. Musically, the album does not sound like the early Canterbury scene but is more reminiscent of contemporaries Brand X, whose guitarist John Goodsall appears here on the title track. The album, released in August 1978, is also considered a "vanguard of progressive jazz improvised music".[2]
