Keith Tippett London Residency Next Month
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Jul 26, 2013
Another shout-out for the fact that Keith Tippett is playing a three-night residency during August at The Vortex Jazz Club in London. Each evening showcases a different aspect of the composer and pianist’s work across contemporary classical, jazz and improvised music.

Tippett will be best known to King Crimson enthusiasts for his striking contributions to In The Wake Of Poseidon, Lizard and Islands. Robert Fripp, who in turn produced several Tippett-related releases, (including Septober Energy by the 50-piece Centipede) was so impressed by Tippett’s work and musical vision that he offered the pianist co-ownership of King Crimson.

Thursday August 15th
Keith Tippett with the Elysian Quartet
The programme will include Keith Tippett’s string quartet, commissioned by the Elysian Quartet in 2008. In the second half Tippett’s piano quintet ‘Linuckea’ will be performed. This was commissioned by the Kreutzer Quartet in 1995.
