What a drums!! February 20, 2012
Written by TheWinkler
My grandfather should be 105 by now but he died at 97. He was an excellent musician that could have been professional, but his family forced him to be an architect.
He founded the first Jazz orchestra in Barcelona in 1927, called Tribu Universitaria and played sax (imported from the US as there were no saxes in Europe then) and violin, among other instruments.
When he come home, I always played him some of my favourite prog music, he quite liked some of it, other bored him to death. Dispite his violin expertise, he never enjoyed David Cross playing i.e.
But I still remember the first time I played In the Court of the Crimson King to him. After only 20 seconds of playing his face litghtened and he exclamed in his Spanish jazzy language: Quť "drums"!!!! (What a drum player!!!!).
Thank you Alex, for bringing this back to my mind. Dispite what Mr. Fripp says, I think that Michaels playing in 21st, ITCOCK and Epitaph, canít get any better.

there is a mistake in the track listing. What is listed as "Walk Donít Run" is actually "Pipeline."

The sonic quality of this recording is outstanding. It seems though that the time of the perfomance prevented music form further developing itself as the improvisations end quite suddenly. That didnít spoiled their Read more

...and you can hear the (very) final chords which are a kind of homage to Tango. Remember that KC reincarnated in Buenos Aires in 1994...

I didnít expect enjoying this one as much as I did. I loved the album when it came out but it has since gotten less airplay than the following KCounterparts (Thrak Attack & ProjeKcts) that I love for their improvisationnal Read more
