The Crimson Jazz Trio
About The Crimson Jazz Trio
As the name implies, the Crimson Jazz Trio (CJ3) was a trio that covered King Crimson songs, turning them into instrumental jazz compositions. The official site has this to say about the genesis of the band: Drummer Ian Wallace conceived the idea for the CJ3 while on tour with the 21st Century Schizoid Band. “I had so much fun playing these songs again, especially live where there was much improvisation. I thought it might be a cool idea to rearrange some of Crimson material in a jazz format.” Read more about The Crimson Jazz Trio on Last.fm.
