Robert Fripp and his League of Crafty Guitarists

Robert Fripp and his League of Crafty Guitarists present a guitar circle in which you need an IQ of, oh, 200 or so just to get a chair.

There's no visual for it but the recording is about forty-seven minutes later so it works for pushing some jams on a secondary screen while attending to the matters of your busy life.

I have had the privilege of seeing them in concert and that was at Bogart's in Cincinnati which is a relatively-small venue compared the stadium acts I saw so many times but everything is up-front and close there.  I think Lotho was there for this one but I'm not sure who else.

There was only one word from Robert Fripp:  discipline.  Listen and you will hear why.  Loose jams in C won't cut it with this lot.

He will talk at about +35:00 into it and do expect to hear more blinding genius than you may hear in any other ten minutes or so all day.  It's a great wholesome feeling for an axe-whacker of feeling so completely unworthy.  It is ... everyone needs some of that.
