The seven-piece KING CRIMSON is a formidable beast, and that’s something when it’s an impression of the band who have always been a force to reckon with. This scribe witnessed their current show just recently, on November 21st, 2015, the next day – and at the same place – where Robert Fripp’s ensemble recorded their latest live album. Titled “Live In Toronto,” the double-disc adventure available now as a download from the group’s website, it is to take on a physical release on March 17th. Highly recommended – and expect the interview with the collective’s singer Jakko Jakszyk soon.
The album’s running order is below, but that’s only a part of what’s to come, as the band are compiling a live record culled from various venues’ performances: it’s going to be a multi-disc set with a video element.
