Rick Keene Music Scene; Montreal Jazz Festival Preview – King Crimson.

King Crimson are one of ‘those‘ bands …

Several short stints in several increments have survived since 1969. Starting with ‘The Court of The Crimson King’ until their upcoming appearance on July 3rd in Montreal – this band is still cutting  edge.

 

Please listen below to my chat with Gavin Harrison, one of three drummers within King Crimson. He talks about all of the above and why he thinks touring in a van may not be such a good idea for young bands.

Gavin? What’s up?

Michael Kaeshammer; Honoring his Roots

Micheal Kaeshammer knows where he came from …

Because of this – his latest album is a tribute to someone whose influence is a cornerstone to Kaeshammer’s foundation. A concrete reason for Micheal’s love of the New Orleans‘ sound.
