Robert Frippís name appeared on the marquee of this chain record store for about a week, and I was shocked. I attended the concert on time and the store was already thoroughly packed. So I had to stand in the back, and since it was a store floor after all, it was hard to see. Also Mr. Fripp is relatively short in stature so that made it worse.
Mr. Fripp began with a surprisingly lengthy unamplified spoken preamble which was very difficult to make out, and audience members were shouting out from time to time with, "Microphone! Canít hear you!" etc. One thing I recall him saying which surprised me was a comment on digital sampling and saying how wonderful it was that now we could use practically any sound in any manner, and he gave the example of using a door slam as a drumbeat. Disregarding the audienceís outbursts, Mr. Fripp spoke in a very quiet manner. He also mentioned something about the performerís limited obligation to the audience, the "vampiric" relationship, and a prohibition on recording devices, since they diminish the possibilities of the performance. With much urgency, someone finally appeared with a mic on a mic-stand and after weaving through the audience, placed it in front of Mr. Fripp. Whereby, Mr. Fripp immediately concluded his monologue and began his guitar solo with Revox machine.
When that was done, Mr. Fripp stopped, rewound the tape, gave a brief description of the intention of the following overdubbed improvisation, and then proceeded with a rather scalding performance over top the previous foundation.
Quite soon after the performance I was obligated to leave for some reason that I donít recall. I was quite overwhelmed by the performance.
In the photo, you can see a "corn plant" which is a popular ornamental plant, and also large paper which was hung for the performance, over the enormous plate glass windows of the store. The store has changed hands multiple times, but still stands at 1500 E Sunrise BLVD.

Finally, another show from the Fall 2003 tour, until now represented only by the incomparable Kingston concert. Really like PMís percussion/sample interludes here -- nice atmospheres. I could take a lot more of this kind of Read more

Iím puzzled by the previous reviewerís complaint of "distortion in the drum beats" -- I donít hear any distortion through my speakers (headphones either). Maybe the reviewerís speakers were blown, or he just isnít used to the sound of Read more

This is definitely my favourite period of Soundscapes. And although some prefer the latest Churchscapes as more accessible and true, there is something positive about them as they lack those moving and dark timbres and emotions of That Read more

This is a very nice version of Hope. The Bridge Between is one of my favorite records and this piece is a wonderful example of what Trey Gunn brought to the mix that eventually became the Double Trio version Read more

Iím surprised we only have a bootleg cassette source for that one. Why ? Because that show was professionally recorded. It was part of the "Musicorama" concerts, broadcasted in France every sunday night by a radio (Europe 1), and I Read more
