“Whenever the innovative jazz and contemporary-classical music of recent times gets weighed up, the name of Keith Tippett doesn't surface as often as it should. Yet for his prepared-piano experiments, early advances in jazz-rock fusion, compositions for chamber ensembles, adventures for huge orchestras and more, the Bristol-born pianist and composer is a key figure in European art music.” – The Guardian
Keith Tippett presents The Rare Music Club – two nights specially curated by Tippett himself, featuring collaborations spanning the formidable breadth of his creative output. Tippett is one of the most important European jazz musicians (improvisers, composers, arrangers) in the last 40 years and its with great pleasure that we welcome him back to Cafe OTO.
