Ars Longa Vita Brevis is the second album by the English progressive rock group the Nice. Guitarist David O'List left the band during the recording of the album, leaving the remaining three members to complete it. After flirting briefly with replacement guitarists (including Steve Howe, later to join Yes), the Nice decided to carry on as a keyboard-led trio

Ars Longa Vita Brevis - Symphony For Group And Orchestra. The Nice (Featuring Keith Emerson) - Ars Longa Vita Brevis ‎(LP, Album).

The Nice's second album, and their first as a trio, was a genuinely groundbreaking effort, and now it sounds the way it was always supposed to. The 1998 Castle Communications reissue (ESM 646), part of its Essential Masters series, puts even the version in the 1995 Charly box to shame - that was clean and clear, where this is bright, with a much more solid high end and richer bass as well. The energy of the band's playing comes through, along with enough detail to allow you to hear the action on the keyboards in some instances. This is not only the first Nice album to sound as good.

Ars Longa Vita Brevis is a music studio album recording by THE NICE (Symphonic Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 1968 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. Ars Longa Vita Brevis SNAPPER UK 2007.
