Live In Philadelphia, PA - August 26, 1996 = 2 CD = (CD)
If there's a star of this show, it has to be Belew, who's particularly vicious during his solos on "Elephant Talk," the perennial "21st Century Schizoid Man" and relentless "Larks' Tongues in Aspic Part II." Drummer Pat Mastelotto, who didn't really get the chance to blossom in this incarnation as he would the Double Duo that went on to release The ConstruKction of Light (DGM Live, 2000) and more satisfying Power to Believe (Sanctuary, 2003), is more a foil to longstanding Crimson drummer Bill Bruford's precision grooves. Meanwhile, touch guitarist Trey Gunn doesn't stand out as much as the group's ineffable groove-meister, bassist/stick man Tony Levin. But they both add to the jagged density that was a differentiator of this line-up, as it reaches out for greater improvisational territory on the complex head-banger, "THRAK." Despite being overshadowed at this show by Belew on the solo front, Robert Fripp has been at the core of the group's aesthetic since its inception 40 years ago. Members come and go, and each defines how a specific line-up will sound, but it's Fripp who turns every incarnation into Crimson. Live in Philadelphia may not be the Double Trio's best show, but it's still a fine one, and a worthwhile document for those who continue to follow this group's every move.
