SHOUTS OF MORE! AT THE MOORE
on Jun 12, 2017
King Crimson's Friends and Family in Seattle last night has been given a thumbs-up by the host of folks lucky enough to attend the show. If you don't want to know what tracks are currently being played look away now. The Make Weird Music blog had this to say...
The performance of [Fracture] was an unforgettable life experience for me and left me stunned.The arrangement included a beautiful passing of notes between Robert Fripp and Jakko Jakszyk, incredible percussive and drum additions across the three (three!) drummers, a deeper exploration of the song’s motifs, and a new musical direction after the moto perpetuo. The performance and arrangement were so impressive, the performers received a near-immediate standing ovation. The friends and family crowd were screaming, standing in the aisles between seats, clapping above their heads, and shaking their heads in disbelief. It was the kind of performance that kicked you out of your seat and made you feel like you could run a marathon. It was overwhelming.

Meanwhile, Tony Levin has been able to update his website and includes another great gallery of photographs documenting the Seatte rehearsals.
After playing a setlist of what he thinks is about three and half hours long(!) Tony says, "Well, we’re underway now! The music is challenging, and hopefully we’ll be giving the audiences an experience they’ll find memorable.
