Magari al Vortex si esagera un po' sul calcolo degli anni, ma ne son davvero passati più di alcuni dall'ultima volta che Keith Tippett e Louis Moholo-Moholo si sono esibiti in duo per il pubblico londinese: accade di nuovo domani sera nel glorioso jazz club di Gillett Square, passata neanche da ventiquattr'ore la sbornia dell'Intakt Records Festival, e l'attesa è quella di un vero e proprio evento.

Playing as a duo on a British stage for the first time in years, this night matches two iconic musicians, known for their range of influences and technical prowess. Keith Tippett’s piano playing is mesmerising, while Louis Moholo-Moholo still captures the energy and surprise that he brought over already to this country when a member of the legendary Blue Notes.
It is always a major occasion whenever Keith Tippett or Louis Moholo-Moholo appear at the club, and here we are bringing the two of them together to celebrate one of the most important partnerships in the history of jazz in this country. When we arranged this date Keith said: “Tell them that between us we’ll be bringing 146 years of music, experience and comradeship to the occasion.”
