Risuonano stasera al Vortex Jazz Club a Londra le note sublimi di From Granite to Wind. E' di scena l'ottetto di Keith Tippett: http://www.vortexjazz.co.uk/this-months-programme.html

Keith Tippett has been one of the UK's most inventive solo improvisers and composers since the 1970s, and this continuous-performance suite, From Granite to Wind, is a fine representation of those skills. It's a framework for the impressionistic poetry of his vocalist wife, Julie Tippetts, and the sax-playing of four fine soloists including long-time associate Paul Dunmall. Other members of the Octet are all west country sax players largely unknown to London audiences, including Ben Waghorn (tenor) and Kevin Figes alongside James Gardiner-Bateman (altos). The Rolls Royce rhythm section comprises Peter Fairclough (drums/perc) and Thad Kelly (bass).
