Keith Tippett at the London Jazz Festival

Jez Nelson presents a concert by pioneering British pianist Keith Tippett given on the opening night of the 2008 London Jazz Festival. This programme reflects the breadth and longevity of Tippett's career and includes highlights from the gig, which include a rare 'T 'n T' duet with Stan Tracy, a collaboration featuring the dynamic vocals of his long-term partner Julie Tippett and a performance with innovative string group the Elysian Quartet.

Tippett has played a central role in the evolution of British jazz for the last 40 years, from his work in the late 1960s leading his 50-piece ensemble Centipede to the improvisation of his solo piano performances.
