LONDON Kings Place (Hall One)
90 York Way
An evening to celebrate a seminal and inspirational figure in the evolution of UK jazz since the 1960s.
In the first part of the concert Keith Tippett unveils a brand new duo with fellow pianist Matthew Bourne – himself one of the most provocatively talented artists of a later generation.
The second part of the concert will consist of a full set with the Keith Tippett Octet who plays on his most recent, acclaimed recording The Nine Dances of Patrick O'Gonogon, in music that carries echoes of Irish folk themes, Ellington and Mingus, but which is entirely of Tippett’s own making, with a band of precociously talented young players as well as the assured presence of drummer Peter Fairclough.
Julie Tippetts adds her evocative voice to the final song in music described by Guardian as ‘simply breathtaking’.
