My thanks to the mighty Vargan for alerting me to this item from Tony's website. "I have the opportunity to re-release my photo book, Crimson Chronicles in digital format (for iPad). It will feature all the photos, but also a lot of extras, including other shots that didn't make it to the original book. So, that's got me digging through my files for photos, itineraries, tour passes, and music I can use for that release."

45 Years Ago This Week
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Apr 14, 2016
45 years ago this week, the new line-up of Boz, Mel Collins, Ian Wallace and Robert Fripp  were playing their first series of gigs in Frankfurt's Zoom Club. It was the first time Fripp had played on a stage in front of the public since December 1969.  

The shows, available here to download, capture the band in a somewhat liberated mood, clearly enjoying themselves with older material and finding their own voice and sound on new tracks such as Sailor's Tale.

Melody Maker's Richard Williams talked to the group after their return from the Zoom Club and was impressed by what he heard.

"AFTER MORE than a year off the road, King Crimson slid quietly back into public performance last week with a hush-hush four-day stint in Germany.
The gig was a warm-up for the band's 12-date British tour, which takes place in May. It was their first live appearance since Ian McDonald, Mike Giles, and Greg Lake left the group following their American trip in the winter of 1969.
The new personnel consists of Bob Fripp and Pete Sinfield plus reedman Mel Collins, drummer Ian Wallace (formerly with The World), and singer Boz, who also plays bass guitar.

In fact Fripp taught Boz to play bass from scratch, starting two months ago, because they couldn't find a suitable bassist.

They played eight sets at Frankfurt's Zoom Club, all of which were taped, purely for reference. The recordings show that the band has grown together in a remarkably short space of time, and is already developing its own personality, despite the fact that its repertoire is mostly songs also performed by the old band: 'In The Court Of The Crimson King', 'Schizoid Man', 'A Sailor's Tale', and so on.

It's a very strong-blowing band, with particular emphasis on Collins's extraordinaryily confident alto and tenor. Abetted by Wallace, he's never afraid to go "outside," and the tapes convey many moments of superb free playing.
Pete Sinfield's use of the VCS3 synthesiser is unusual and highly creative, and the way he mutates the sound of the drums will amaze many listeners. Wallace is not as precise as Mike Giles, but he has perhaps more fire, and makes intelligent use of space and silence. Boz's singing is ebullient and generally controlled, while on bass he's learning how to hold down the time and tonality of Fripp's immensely complex compositions.

In short, the new band will be every bit as satisfying as the old, and the possibilities for growth appear limitless. Bob Fripp was almost bubbling over with joy, after having confessed to extreme nervousness after such a long time away from audiences."

Keith’s Kickstarter Update
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Apr 14, 2016
A Kickstarter campaign launched to fund a new Keith Tippett album has just 13 days left to go. Martin Archer of Discus Music, who will be releasing Tippett’s recent composition for octet, The Nine Dances Of Patrick O’Gonogan, said "I need only 15 more subscribers to nail this release, yes, just 15, so if so far you've been 'oh, yeah, I'll get round to that' - then NOW IS THE TIME."

You can find out more by visiting Keith's Kickstarter page here.

One of the very best players and composers of his generation on British jazz scene, Tippett will be known to King Crimson fans for his work on In The Wake Of Poseidon, Lizard and Islands.

He was also the animating force by Centipede, a large scale jazz and rock orchestra. Produced by Robert Fripp, their 1971 album, Septober Energy, featured KC alumni including Ian McDonald and Boz, and players such as Mark Charig, Nick Evans and Harry Miller, who variously appeared on Lizard and Islands.

Meanwhile, Keith Tippett’s latest solo album, Live In Piacenza, recorded in 2012, is now available from Dark Companion Records. Check it out here and you can also get my take on it over on the blog.
