The Story of I is the first solo album by former Yes keyboard player Patrick Moraz, released in June 1976. After the success of Relayer, the band Yes made a decision that next, each member would make a solo album. The Story of I is the first solo album by Patrick Moraz. By the time the album was released, Moraz was still touring with Yes but he was let go by the band in late 1976 after Rick Wakeman was booked on a session musician basis during the Going for the One recording sessions in Switzerland.

Keyboardist Patrick Moraz, well-known from his work in the band YES during Relayer era was releasing with The Story of I his first solo album after his demise from YES. It's a piece of work that is regarded as masterly by some people whereas others including me cannot really appreciate this stuff presented here. This quite unique blend seams to work still in the first track Impact. But after this one the album really starts to become annoying. Obviously Patrick Moraz used to love a lot latin american rhythms and so he was trying here to integrate a complete brazilian percussion group into this album with the result of a catastrophic failure. Just because most of the music is rather rooted in the western "white" pop-rock style, so the whole album is sounding in some way not coherent at all, more like an arbitrary patchwork.

Former Yes and Moody Blues keyboardist Patrick Moraz mixes numerous Latin and rock rhythms together via his lively synth work, resulting in a full-flavored, energetic album. Not typical sounding to say the least, there are hints of funk and marimba, Caribbean and South American styles, and even flamenco, all guided by Moraz's whirlwind keyboard playing. Inspired by the Brazilian ballet, each song dances with piquancy and flow, never repeating the same rhythms or sounds while at the same time introducing a wide variety of percussion instruments  . The Story of I is a refreshing twist from this progressive craftsman and can sincerely be appreciated by all audiences.
