This CD begins with a track entitled ‘A Kind of Red’, combining the first part of Miles’ best known album with the title of a King Crimson album from the mid 1970s. I saw this as a tongue-in-cheek acknowledgement of the challenges of jazzing the music of the progressive rock band King Crimson, which is the focus of these recordings. The Delta Saxophone Quartet have already shown that they can reimagine prog rock, with their previous album of Soft Machine songs. At its worse, prog rock was often derided as overly structured noodling over a thumping drumbeat.
