Read "King Crimson alla Cavea dell'Auditorium, Roma" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

King Crimson
Cavea dell'Auditorium
Roma
22.07.2018

Pochi gruppi nella storia della musica rock sono stati importanti quanto i King Crimson. Nei quasi 50 anni trascorsi dalla loro prima apparizione risalente al 1969 hanno sempre rappresentato un punto di riferimento avanzato per il rock progressivo (anche se la definizione non è ...

King Crimson: Live In Vienna, December 1st, 2016 (UK Edition)

Read "Live In Vienna, December 1st, 2016 (UK Edition)" reviewed by John Kelman

Another year, another live King Crimson set? True, perhaps. But since reforming in a slightly shifting but conceptually constant form in 2013 to begin touring in the fall of the following year, the band's forward-looking, ever-growing repertoire of new music and revisitation of old music (from across its nearly half century career) made new again has ...

Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary

Read "Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

More than any other person, Leonardo Pavkovic has made me write some crazy shit.

Pavkovic is the primal force behind the joyously eclectic MoonJune Records, which he established in 2001. “Established" may not be the right word: “I am truly an unusual and rules breaking call-it-record-company with a 'label' identity despite the fact that ...

King Crimson: Sailors' Tales 1970-1972

Read "Sailors' Tales 1970-1972" reviewed by John Kelman

If it's a fundamental truth that adversity can sometimes bring the absolute best, creatively speaking, out of music and the people who make it, then the roughly 23 months following the release of King Crimson's classic 1969 debut, In the Court of the Crimson King (Island)--and, after a single North American tour, the breakup of its ...

King Crimson: Official Bootleg: Live in Chicago, June 28th, 2017

Read "Official Bootleg: Live in Chicago, June 28th, 2017" reviewed by John Kelman

As many King Crimson fans eagerly await the November release of its latest 40th Anniversary Series box set--this time spanning the years 1970 through 1972, when saxophonist/flautist Mel Collins was a constant alongside band co-founder/guitarist Robert Fripp for three studio albums (1970's In the Wake of Poseidon and Lizard, and 1971's Islands) and one live album ...

Evan Parker

Read "Evan Parker" reviewed by John Eyles

In his biography of Robert Wyatt, Different Every Time (Serpent's Tail, 2015), author Marcus O'Dair describes Evan Parker as “perhaps the finest British free-jazz saxophonist of his generation." The only words in that phrase that seasoned Parker followers might take issue with are “perhaps," “British" and “free-jazz," preferring just to describe him as the finest improvising ...

Stick Men at Havana

Stick Men
Havana
New Hope, PA
August 15, 2017

Stick Men look like a secondary project or side endeavor on the surface--probably inevitable since the members are most known in the progressive music world for being part of the King Crimson family--but there's a real difference between being a side ...

Miles Mosley Gets Down!

Read "Miles Mosley Gets Down!" reviewed by Andrea Murgia

Bassist, singer and composer: Miles Mosley is all of this and much more. After studying with bass giants like John Clayton and Ray Brown, Mosley extensively toured with musicians of the caliber of Lauryn Hill, Jeff Beck, Gnarls Barkley and Mos Def and participated in the recording of albums by Korn's Jonathan Davis and Avenged Sevenfold, ...

Dewa Budjana: Zentuary

Read "Zentuary" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Indonesian composer, guitarist and bandleader Dewa Budjana's tenth release (and his first on guitarist Steve Vai's label Favored Nations in association with Budjana's usual label, MoonJune) reviews, consolidates and advances his sound. Budjana's three decades of performing and recording, including collaborations with jazz A-listers as Peter Erskine, Joe Locke and Larry Goldings, are worth the retrospective. ...
