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.

The music of Fripp is rather known by me. His style is very abstract and does not make music. To my opinion, experimentation is the bridge between silence and music. I think in my humble opinion that Fripp is only sitting Read more

It was an excerpt from this recording - I believe released by RF in the wake of 9/11 - that awakened me to the power of soundscapes. Over the years since I downloaded the full performance, it has proven unfailing Read more
|Arguably the best King Crimson show I've seen Thu., Jul 8, 2010|

Went into this concert expecting adventure and bonhomie, and was utterly floored by the energy, good humor and go-for-broke spirit on offer. In terms of those qualities, and also with regard to the extensiveness and high quality of the improvisations, Read more

King Crimson rises with greater rage when under pressure and this gig is the perfect example of such situation.
Everybody was disgusted with some aspect or another and the tensions were spoiling the general happiness, but the most intriguing is the Read more

ProjeKct 3 was my favorite ProjeKct by far. This one had the most power, for my ears. This however, I couldnít finish listening to. Sounded to me like they were just noodling with synth patches rather than really making Read more

Any projeKct archive stuff is just awesome. This sound quality is beyond belief and since the ProjeKct/TCOL era Crim is my fav this is just an extra special treat.
