Heaven & Earth: Live and in the Studio 1997-2008

Read "Heaven & Earth: Live and in the Studio 1997-2008" reviewed by John Kelman

Yet another year, yet another characteristically detailed and chronologically contextualized King Crimson mega-box set.

Except that 2019 is no typical year. And Heaven & Earth is no typical King Crimson box set.

While Heaven & Earth: Live and in the Studio 1997-2008 completes (well, almost) the series of box sets documenting King ...

King Crimson: Live in Newcastle, December 8, 1972

Read "Live in Newcastle, December 8, 1972" reviewed by John Kelman

"Never say never," or so the old adage goes. When it comes to music, there are two more that should be added: “farewell tour" and, most certainly as it relates to King Crimson's Live in Newcastle, December 8, 1972, “the complete recordings." This, the 48th in the veteran group's King Crimson Collector's Club series of archival ...

Dialeto: Dialeto Live with David Cross

Read "Dialeto Live with David Cross" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

It's a question that inevitably finds every serious music listener: What do you listen to when you don't know what you want to listen to, other than you want to listen to “something different?"

Howzabout Dialeto: Live with David Cross the next time this mood finds you? Is a set that simultaneously honors one ...

Nicola Conte & Spiritual Galaxy
Let Your Light Shine On
MPS
2018

One of the best parts of Let Your Light Shine On is how it plucks out musical threads from throughout the galaxy (more on that later) and knits them together into truly groovy, soulful cloth. But ...

David Cross: Crossing the Tracks

Read "Crossing the Tracks" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Violinist extraordinaire David Cross made a significant impression during his early 1970s tenure with King Crimson, performing on three seminal albums: Larks' Tongues in Aspic (Island, 1973), Starless and Bible Black (Island, 1974) and Red (Island, 1974). Other than some gaps, Cross has been active via his David Cross Band that has issued several albums, in ...

Cross Purposes

Read "Cross Purposes" reviewed by Geno Thackara

He hasn't had quite such a visible solo profile as some of his past and future King Crimson colleagues, but that probably suits David Cross just fine. He's used to not being a noticeably out-front presence (normal for a violinist in the rock world, after all), but his electrified playing still has no shortage of juice ...

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 ...

David Cross Band: Sign of the Crow

Read "Sign of the Crow" reviewed by Geno Thackara

The David Cross Band lets you know you're in for something picturesque right away with Sign of the Crow. The title suggests something portentous while the cover is pure Stephen King. It may suggest a quiet and gloomy listen, but if you know the violinist from his time in early-'70s King Crimson or the genre-spanning collaborations ...

Live in Toronto: Queen Elizabeth Theatre, November 20, 2015

Read "Live in Toronto: Queen Elizabeth Theatre, November 20, 2015" reviewed by John Kelman

"The best live albums are the ones that make you glad they were recorded while simultaneously regretting you couldn't have been in the venue on the night." So writes Declan Colgan, president of Panegyric Records--the label responsible for, amongst other things, King Crimson's extensive 40th Anniversary reissue series of its initial run of studio and live ...
