King Crimson frontman Jakko Jakczyk on playing with his childhood heroes for the first time: “(The standout moment for me was) standing on stage at the end of King Crimson's first appearance in Albany in upstate New York. Having just sung and played ‘Schizoid Man’ standing there next to Robert, Mel and Tony, 42 years after seeing the band play the same number at Watford Town Hall as a 13-year-old. I had chills running though me. A pretty extraordinary moment.” #KingCrimson #ProgressiveRock
 
We have been privileged to be able to interview Guitarist and lead singer Jakko Jakszyk who joined King Crimson in 2013.

"New stuff is being written and experimented with all the time, whether this material will end up on a ‘studio’ album or not is not my call.”

Cadence & Cascade - King Crimson

Preciosa y pastoral balada cantada por Gordon Haskell.

Lyrics

Cadence and Cascade
Kept a man named Jade
Cool in the shade
While his audience played

Purred, whispered, "Spend us too
We only serve for you"

Sliding, mystified
On the wine of the tide
Stared pale-eyed
As his veil fell aside

Sad paper courtesan
They found him just a man

Caravan hotel
Where the sequin spell fell
Custom of the game

Cadence oiled in love
Licked his velvet gloved hand
Cascade kissed his name

Sad paper courtesan
They knew him, just a man

Cadence and Cascade
Cadence and Cascade
Cadence

Songwriters
PETER JOHN SINFIELD, ROBERT FRIPP

I like Court and Wake about the same amount.. I'll actually give it to Wake this time. Lizard isn't too far behind, and Islands is last (still a really good album anyways).

Its hard to believe this is an improv. This is my favorite King Crimson improv actually! it is so beautiful and peaceful. it is Bliss and heaven! Oh, it is gorgeousness and gorgeousity made flesh. It is like a bird of rarest-spun heaven metal or like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship as the interplay and harmony between the guitar and violin is superbly blissful and peaceful and progresses into an intense crescendo before quieting down. Taken from the magnificent live box set "The Great Deceiver". -Nathan Duthoy (KC fan since 2001). Seen them 4x in concert, the last time being 9/30/2014 in Los Angeles!!!!!
Below: Orpheum Theater, there I am in the 20th row!!

The Devil's Triangle - King Crimson (70)

"The Devil's Triangle", el tema estrella del album 'In the Wake of Poseidon', es una marcha al estilo Bolero de Ravel de volumen y complejidad creciente donde los potentes mellotrones llenan todo el ambiente.

21 st Century Schizoid Man - King Crimson

Conjunto de sonidos desconcertantes y agradables que sacude los sentidos.
Abrasiva mezcla de hard rock y jazz de uno de los primeros álbumes de rock progresivo.

Cat's foot iron claw
Neuro-surgeons scream for more
At paranoia's poison door.
Twenty first century schizoid man.

Blood rack barbed wire
Politicians' funeral pyre
Innocents raped with napalm fire
Twenty first century schizoid man.

Death seed blind man's greed
Poets' starving children bleed
Nothing he's got he really needs
Twenty first century schizoid man.

"Algaravia" é uma banda brasileira de rock progressivo formada em 1995 na cidade de Recife. Teve início após a transformação natural de uma banda de Heavy Metal chamada "Fire Worshipers", que contava com "Fred Herbaud" na guitarra e voz, "Jean-Jacques Herbaud" no baixo e uma gigantesca lista de bateristas no histórico que terminava com "Albert Pimenta". Com a evolução musical da "Fire Worshipers", tornou-se necessária a adição de mais músicos para que se executassem as idéias que já não cabiam em um simples power trio, sendo assim, resolveram convidar "Sidney Jaires" (que antes só ía assistir os ensaios) para executar uma segunda linha de guitarra que na maioria das vezes era antagônica, não na harmonização, mas na divisão rítmica, o que despertaria a atenção de alguns fãs, em sequência, surgiu a necessidade de um bom percussionista, então chamaram "Vladimir Ricardo". Assim foi feito em 1996 seu único álbum, chamado "Breve e Interminável", lançado e distribuído pelo selo Progressive Rock Worldwide. Se fosse "King Crimson" que tivesse feito este álbum, teria sido elogiado como um dos seus melhores nos últimos anos, definitivamente, mas foi emitido por uma banda desconhecida de rock progressivo do Brasil, e reconhecido apenas por um pequeno grupo de pessoas que tiveram a sorte de prestar atenção suficiente ao seu conteúdo, que realmente está longe de ser apenas um bom prog rock. A música triste é o suficiente para atrair fãs de bandas como "Anekdoten", mas também é dinâmica e aceitável para aqueles que preferem "Al Di Meola" e "Return To Forever". O álbum, com mais de 75 minutos de virtuosismo musical com desenvolvimentos complexos do tema e humor. Especial atenção deve ser dada ao trabalho de guitarra de "Sidney Jaires" e fundo de percussão do grande "Vladimir Ricardo". 
Espero um dia presenciar o lançamento de outro disco, a banda realmente tem muito talento musical e esse disco é maravilhoso, recomendo.
