DGM's tribute to the mighty bass guitarist that was John Wetton. Compiled from a Fripp, Wetton and Collins session recorded prior to the making of Exposure, this is quite easily the best jazz-rock power trio that never existed, with the famous Wetton crunching bass well to the fore. Astonishing to think that John made his huge contribution to King Crimson in just three brief years before moving on to UK, Roxy Music and Asia. The comments section below leaves a space where we can collect tributes.

peak of KC
John's contribution to music, let alone KC, was immense. I grew up with listening to USA and SABB and Red, his vocal style matched KCs style perfectly. Then Asia, where he carved another great success out for himself. One of rocks greatest talents, sadly missed.

Unmistakably Wetton
Easier to hear his individuality in that trio setting than in Crimson live improvs, especially with Fripp and Collins giving him that much room. Reminds me a bit of the Hendrix/Billy Cox/Buddy Miles "Nine to the Universe" jam sessions.

Ferocious
My greedy ears always wanted more of Wetton like this, and less of Manzanera/Wetton (shudder) and of the Asia iterations. This is mean and lean and man I wish there was more. Thanks for allowing us to revel in a little of the brute force of nature that is/was John Wetton. Rest in peace, and I hope that you choose a fantastic drummer for your all star band in the Great Beyond.

Best jazzrock trio?
No. That was McLaughlin-Pastorius-Williams. Maybe Fripp-Wetton-Bruford could have been almost as great, but not with Collins.
