Sample Review from
Whilst acknowledging that the band didn’t play very well on their first
night at the House Of Blues, Trey Gunn declared it to be “a hot show. Very hot. Hot with energy that is…I have
to scratch it up to the audience again. You little angels, you. What would we do without you?” The crowd can certainly
be heard making their presence felt during a variable set of highs and lows.
The improvs provide a glimpse of the
electronica-based KC that manifested itself through the projeKcts. Driven largely by Mastelotto’s ingenious use of samples
and on-the-fly editing, we can hear Belew’s sarangi-style solo that would later be such a feature of TPTB II, as well
as a scalding splash of twisted lines in the rhythmic second section. Clearly on something of a roll, he continues to shine
on Oyster Soup with a superb break. Also more than worthy of your attention is the dreamy version of Cage, benefiting from
some unexpected Fripp string-washes on the chorus, and significantly adding to the spine-tingle factor.
FraKctured rips along like a bucking bronco with Fripp seemingly hanging on by the skin of his teeth. An incomplete LTIA ptIV
(the opening moments are sadly cropped) also comes unstuck in places, and though they just about grab it back, Belew’s
vocals sound a touch stretched by the coda.
And what was Fripp’s take on the gig? "I felt it was awful, but
why? Did the set list restrict the show's process? A continual series of small mistakes cumulatively unseated its unfolding.
We recovered the flow to a degree during the encores - perhaps 90% says Pat. David felt London was a better show, but suggests
the bar is getting higher for what is accepted as a norm for this Crim."
