Nick Bradey Got this as soon as it was available . All the Stick Men releases are superb - check out the live sets with David Cross also .
I also recommend Tony Levin's releases
with his other bands . Anything he is involved with is worth checking .
Mel Collins is a superb musician - his
contributions to the current King Crimson line up are game changing .

Carsten Pieper They did it again: Two years after the Midori live album featuring their concerts with David Cross they teamed with another Crimson member, Mel Collins, who is one of my favourite reedists in the prog/rock area and, btw, has been playing with everyone in that field since the 70s.
As could be expected, first-grade prog rock (Crimso classics, Stick Men originals and, for good measure, some impressive improvs thrown in the mix). Favorite track: Sailor's Tale.

about

Stick Men and King Crimson fans are in for a treat. For the 2017 tour of Japan, Mel Collins joined the power prog trio Stick Men featuring Tony Levin, Pat Mastelotto and Markus Reuter - for six sold out concerts. It's not the first time the Stick Men have collaborated with a Crimson alumni. In April 2015 David Cross went out to work with the trio, which resulted in the double album "Midori". Fans' hopes that the much anticipated concerts with Mel Collins would also be documented are now becoming a reality.
