Yes. The current Crimson lineup is Robert Fripp, Adrian Belew, Pat Mastelotto,
and Trey Gunn. When they reformed in '94, it was the Discipline era lineup
(Fripp, Belew, Bruford, and Levin) plus Mastelotto (drums/perc) and Gunn (WARR
touch guitar - like a stick). They called it the "double-trio" because there
were basically 2 of each instrument type. They did a couple albums (just
VROOM as a studio album) and then did a bunch of splinter "ProjeKCts" with
subsets of the 6 members. Now Bruford and Levin are off doing other things.
Trey Gunn played on a couple of tracks on Zooma,
