With four of A Scarcity of Miracles’ participants past Crims—Fripp; drummer Gavin Harrison, from the 2008 tour; bassist Tony Levin a longstanding alum from 1981 on, barring the 2000-03 lineup; and saxophonist/flautist Mel Collins returning after an absence of over 35 years, last appearing as a guest on the landmark Red (DGM Live, 1975)—it’s a small leap to place it within the Crimson continuum. Add Jakko M Jakszyk, who managed to do the near-impossible—sing and play Fripp’s knotty parts in the all-Crimson-alum tribute, 21st Century Schizoid Band (also featuring Collins)—and it would seem impossible for this group to be anything but Crimson.
