Jakko Jakszyk - Waves Sweep The Sand (repost)

Jakko Jakszyk - Waves Sweep The Sand - 2009

By Kohn Kelman from
It's rare that an album of outtakes and rejected music not only succeeds, but actually hangs together as a cohesive work in its own right. As the only member of 21st Century Schizoid Band (performing late-1960s/early-1970s-era Crimson repertoire) who wasn't a King Crimson alum, Jakko M. Jakszyk not only handled the daunting challenge of Crimson co-founder Robert Fripp's guitar parts, but lead vocals as well. Jakszyk emerged as a confident and compelling leader on The Bruised Romantic Glee Club (Iceni, 2006), a double-disc set filled with autobiographical confessions of a progressive bent, and imaginative tributes to seminal groups from Jakszyk's formative years.

With Bruised now back in print with a remixed title track, the independently released Waves Sweep the Sand collects fifteen original songs and two covers, with Jakszyk's liners positioning the material against Bruised. Familiarity with Bruised may be an advantage, but it's absolutely unnecessary in order to enjoy Waves which, with Jakszyk's careful sequencing, remains a compelling and independent piece of work.
