The Crimson Jazz Trio was a jazz trio led by drummer Ian Wallace, formerly of King Crimson, who re-interpreted King Crimson's music.


The trio was conceived by Wallace, who recruited Tim Landers (bass) and Jody Nardone (piano) in 2004. They recorded the album King Crimson Songbook, Volume One (Voiceprint) in 2005. The album includes material from beyond Wallace's early 1970s tenure in King Crimson. It was supported with a few live dates in different parts of the U.S., but plans for further touring were scrapped due to Wallace's falling ill.

The band finished recording a second album, King Crimson Songbook, Volume Two, with assistance from Jakko Jakszyk and Mel Collins (Wallace's colleagues in 21st Century Schizoid Band; Collins is also a King Crimson alumnus and Jakszyk later joined King Crimson) before Wallace died on February 22, 2007. It was released on April 7, 2009 on Inner Knot Records.
