Keith Tippett Octet – From Granite To Wind

Keith Tippett Octet – From Granite To Wind

A 2011 CD release on the Ogun label, recorded by the Octet at the Real World Studios on 30/31 January of that year.

“Keith Tippett has been one of the UK’s most inventive solo improvisers and composers since the 1970s, and this continuous-performance suite is a fine representation of those skills. It’s a framework for the impressionistic poetry of his vocalist wife Julie Tippett, and the sax-playing of four fine soloists including long-time associate Paul Dunmall.”
– John Fordham, Guardian
