XEROX ROCHESTER INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL: King Crimson
KING CRIMSON – Legendary prog rock progenitors King Crimson ended a five-year hiatus in 2014 with the announcement of a fall US tour. The band’s current 8 piece lineup — its ninth since 1969 — includes founder Robert Fripp alongside four drummers, two of whom are multi-instrumentalists, Tony Levin on bass, singer-guitarist Jakko Jakszyk, and Mel Collins on flute and saxophones. Beloved for their virtuosic musicianship and live improvisations, the veteran performers will take fans on an unforgettable musical journey through their hallowed repertoire!
