Biography

Band members:
Robert Fripp (guitar, Frippertronics);
Bert Lams, Hideyo Moriya (acoustic guitar);
Paul Richards (acoustic guitar, Fuzz E-bow guitar);
Trey Gunn (Chapman Stick).

The Robert Fripp String Quartet. Principally recorded live during tours of California, Italy, England and Argentina in May and June, 1993.

After the staid acoustic concerns of the League of Crafty Guitarists, Fripp’s latest ensemble indulges, thankfully, in both electric and electronic applications. Fripp is accompanied here by longtime associate Trey Gunn (on grand stick) and by The California Guitar Trio. His choice of material—some traditional Bach pieces in addition to original works—is cogent, breathtaking, and absolutely absorbing. Contains excellent performances from the Quintet proper as well as a number of compelling Frippertronic passages and Crimson-soaked guitarritude. He challenges both his own earnest reputation and an illustrious catalog of sounds in a precognition of 21st century classical music.

    The name of the band should have "The" at the beginning. At least that's how it's written on the album cover. [5]
