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.

I was at the 8/17 show in New York and was very satisfied. I did, at the time, feel like the guitars were too far back in the mix, though the sound overall was nicely Read more

So, for the first time since 1995 Iíve missed a King Crimson ítourí. The Park West is a fantastic venue for the band, but a prior commitment to a family trip prevented me from Read more

All right then; we see the pattern: those who have not heard this lineup find this to be fantastic, and those who have heard/seen shows later than this find it to be lesser than what they have already Read more

Do not hesitate to buy this show--the sound quality is superb and the "new" take on old favorites is a delight. But letís hope (and lobby!) for a hotter night. I was at the 8/12 Keswick show and this one Read more

Oy! Now thatís what Iím talking about. "Red" just set my little blond ear hairs alight, and Iíve had to use the fire extinguisher on my head. This lineup has the goods, in fact the whole grocery store -- highly Read more

I saw them twice at the Nokia (14th and 16th) and they were tighter then. They are still a little rough at the edges in this gig.

Compared to the show I saw on the 16th at the Nokia, this pales by comparison. Not as powerful, and the drums seem pushed far to the back. The level of intensity isnít the Read more

I hadnít listened to this in quite some time. Over the last week Iíve been revisitng all sorts of Crim goodies after the show last Saturday. I was sort of half-listening to this at work (in fact, I only had Read more

Hearing this show makes me wish I could have been there! Sleepless was a huge surprise, and I think Sid has hit the nail on the head re: 12" Mix. Great show and great Read more
