Jazz à Juan - 11-20 Juillet 2014
July, Tuesday 16

King Crimson

King Crimson is a legend. Because in 1969, with the release of «In the Court of the Crimson King», the band dared to extend the limits of rock, by integrating hyper complex free jazz rhythms and crazy, mind-blowing interludes, inventing a new style, yet without claiming it as theirs: progressive rock. The band has a complex history, appearing, disappearing, then reappearing with new members, who themselves disappear in turn. This is a speciality of King Crimson, which collects final goodbyes and unexpected reformations.

Famed for the intensity of its performances, the band - composed of eight musicians on stage, including the guitarist and composer Robert Fripp, the formation’s only permanent member – offers a wide range of hits taken from twelve of their thirteen albums. A unique show with uncluttered music and no useless accessories, which inspired Kanye West who used a sample of «21st Century Schizoid Man» for his hit «Power» in 2010, while in 2018, «Starless» featured in the original soundtrack of «Mandy», the new film by Nicholas Cage. In the Court of Juan, we can be certain that King Crimson will celebrate their 50th anniversary in style.
