King Crimson: In the Court of the Crimson King (50th Anniversary)

Read "In the Court of the Crimson King (50th Anniversary)" reviewed by John Kelman

The passage of time is often defined by both forward motion and a growing collection of memories past; it's also measured by significant milestones that are either realized at the time or in subsequent years. At a recent Royal/Celebration Package event prior to King Crimson's Théâtre St-Denis performance in Montréal, Canada, guitarist and only remaining group ...

King Crimson at Budweiser Stage & Théâtre St-Denis

Read "King Crimson at Budweiser Stage & Théâtre St-Denis" reviewed by John Kelman

King Crimson 2019 Celebration Tour Budweiser Stage, Toronto, Canada Théâtre St-Denis, Montréal, Canada September 14 & 17, 2019 After covering six shows including two 2014 dates in San Francisco, another two 2015 shows in Montréal, and single, back-to-back 2017 performances in Montréal and Toronto, perhaps the biggest question is:

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: Meltdown (Live in Mexico City)

Read "Meltdown (Live in Mexico City)" reviewed by John Kelman

Something happened to King Crimson between June 28, 2017 in Chicago, IL and the band's five-night run from July 14 to 19 (with a night off on the 17th), that same year, in Mexico City. Both engagements were exceptional, with the Chicago performance captured on Official Bootleg: Live In Chicago, June 28th, 2017 (DGM Live, 2017), ...

Travis & Fripp: Between the Silence

Read "Between the Silence" reviewed by John Kelman

Having reformed in 2013 with its distinctive three-drummer frontline and hitting the road for the first time in over a decade the following year, King Crimson's guitarist/keyboardist and only remaining original member Robert Fripp is another example of a musician in his senior years maintaining a more active schedule than, perhaps, at any other time in ...

Chris Squire: Fish Out of Water (Deluxe Edition)

Read "Fish Out of Water (Deluxe Edition)" reviewed by John Kelman

If ever there were an album that deserved the deluxe treatment, it would be Fish Out of Water (Atlantic, 1975), which would turn out to be (more or less) the only solo album ever released by Yes co-founder and electric bass trailblazer Chris Squire. There was a special remastered edition released in 2007 by Castle Music, ...

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 ...

John Kelman's Best Releases of 2017

Read "John Kelman's Best Releases of 2017" reviewed by John Kelman

For those who may have noticed, there have been no best of lists coming from yours truly since 2014; sadly, the chronic health problem that has reduced my previous writing pace to a crawl continues without much respite. My best of the year lists have always been predicated upon having reviewed the releases chosen, and with ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
