Starting in the late ’60s, Robert Fripp and Frank Zappa forged reputations as two of rock’s most visionary, idiosyncratic and finicky bandleaders, sharing disdain for the industry and a knack for drafting talented associates. Zappa died in 1993, leaving others to carry his legacy, while fellow guitarist Fripp continued to recast and dissolve lineups of King Crimson, hatching its current septet incarnation in 2014.

After a year’s pandemic delay, King Crimson performed at the Leader Bank Pavilion on Friday with the Zappa Band (an estate-sanctioned, alumni-based unit), and both ensembles made the best of treating old catalogs as historical repertory.

The Zappa Band couldn’t do much else, though some songs in its 50-minute set (“Alien Orifice,” “Andy”) were less-than-obvious choices. It was hard to top the kickoff of “Zombie Woof” and “Peaches en Regalia,” where drummer Joe Travers tightly anchored the contrapuntal charms of that instrumental – before he gave Crimson’s Jeremy Stacey a brief turn at the drum kit for “Village of the Sun.”
