Keith Tippett Septet – A Loose Kite Floating In A Gentle Wind With Only My Will For An Anchor

Keith Tippett Septet – A Loose Kite Floating In A Gentle Wind With Only My Will For An Anchor

This album is the only documentation of a short-lived band which unfortunately was brought to a premature end (as Keith Tippett writes in the sleeve notes…) by the 1980s recession and the “British Jazz Revival”. The title is taken from Maya Angelou’s “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings”.

Recorded live in Exeter, UK, on 25 October, 1984

Keith Tippett – piano
Larry Stabbins – tenor & soprano saxophones
Elton Dean – saxello, alto sax on 5
Mark Charig – cornet, tenor horn
Nick Evans – trombone
Paul Rogers – bass
Tony Levin – drums & percussion
