Robert Fripp


Robert Fripp was a co-founder and guitarist of the band King Crimson, whose 1969 debut album In the Court of the Crimson King is a classic of the progressive-rock genre. Through 1995 they recorded sporadically, with Fripp being the only constant in a rotating set of band members. Fripp has also recorded with Brian Eno, Peter Gabriel and The League of Crafty Guitarists.

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.
