Live In Tokyo (InsideOut Music)
release date: 3/3/2014
by Mike Delano
Featuring two sets of three King Crimson alum (Adrian Belew, Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto; Markus Reuter, Julie Slick and Tobias Ralph) and using the “double trio” approach that KC favored in the ’90s, The Crimson ProjeKCt is a suitably ambitious offshoot from the legendary prog masters. This Live In Tokyo release, taken from performances in 2013, leans heavily on material from KC’s records in the ’80s and ’90s, including this take on “Frame By Frame,” from 1981’s Discipline.
