    Here's some fabulous news on the great Crim, taken from their newsletter. I will try to go to both NY dates, but they're in the middle of the week. I hope there isn't too much course work during that week.


    We're happy to announce the release of the latest full length studio
    CD, The Power To Believe! The CD, now available in Japan and soon in
    Europe, will be released March 4th in North America. Full details
    can be found at the King Crimson Web site.

    Fantastic news. I may try to catch the Atlanta show.

    Do you think they will schedule more US dates later in the year? Nashville is a much closer drive for me, and it seems they have played there in the past. Plus, didn't they record parts of the new album there?

    Rob M,
    I would be surprised if they don't play Nashville at some point. They have done a lot of recording and rehearsals there. In fact, some of it is available form the Collector's Club.
    Crimson have done multiple small tours as opposed to one huge mega-tour, so I would hope there will be more dates. However, if you can see them, try to do so, because you never know.

    Kevin.
    Bill Bruford hasn't been involved with Crimson in over 5 years. Neither has Tony Levin. Instead, they have two equally gifted but differently styled musicians in the rhythm section in Pat Mastelotto on drums and Trey Gunn on touch guitar. Pat is a harder hitter and employs a greater variety of sonics, combining electronics with his drumset. This approach fits in with the kind of dense, heavy music Crim is doing now.

    Speaking of Bruford, his jazz band Earthworks is also going on tour, though I don't know off hand when they're coming to the US.
