Another Magical Musical Moment . . .

. . . courtesy King Crimson again. In “A Sailor’s Tale,” there are two, actually: when the dual guitar/sax melody line emerges the first time atop the cool bass-drum pattern that opens the song, but even better: after the solos, the key melody emerges again with some sort of blast of mellotron and organ and maybe another bass, I’m not sure, but the sound is like . . . . BRONK!!!!!! . . . and then it becomes this really dark, minor drone, very haunting and haunted souning. But it’s the BRONK!!!! moment that makes the song.
