Adrian Belew Power Trio

When: Fri., Dec. 5, 8 p.m. 2014

Adrian Belew has one of the more enviable résumés in progressive and art rock, as he’s applied his guitar skills to the recorded and live work of Frank Zappa, David Bowie and Talking Heads. Oh, and he spent 20 years singing and shredding as King Crimson’s frontman. His solo career, especially of late, has yielded lesser delights, as the 64-year-old musician leans far too heavily on his array of guitar effects. Where he still shines is with his Power Trio, a scrappy group that concentrates on jagged rock and jazz-inflected instrumentals. The group pulls Belew’s attention away from noodly meandering and synthesized frippery. —Robert Ham
