Rosemont Theatre Chicago United States
after 99 shows this band was performing at such a level, I cannot imagine how they could improve even further. I'd love to think a future release will include something from this show - it was outstanding. The show continued into Fripp's Soundscapes, which were mesmerizing. Fripp seemed to be barely doing anything, yet the hall was awash in sound. Soundscapes begat B'Boom, B'Boom begat THRAK, THRAK begat... magic! The THRAK improv section was at least twice as long as this summer. It seemed to continue for 10, maybe 15 minutes, and Fripp really let fly here...I admit I may not have the trained musician's ear, but I cannot recall hearing any mistakes, miscues, miseffects, or whatever. The band was truly running on all cylinders.” Part of the improvisation in Thrak was used in This Night Wounds Time and THRaKaTTaK Part II on the THRaKKaTTaK album.
