John Cratchley It is a depressing situation (well,it depresses me anyway) that the arts culture in England,by and large,ignores its truly special,but minority interest,indigent musicians/composers and propagates and supports the mediocre with alarming consistency.
My English musical heroes (Mike Westbrook,Evan Parker,John Surman to name but three of a longer list) have been largely ignored in England but recognised for the towering talents they are on mainland Europe for years.Surely a little recognition and support at home might have helped ease the burden of a lifetime spent in pursuit of the musical truth (although,I suspect they all might play the 'triumph through adversity' card as we English tend to do?). Anyway,add Keith Tippett to that small but elite "England's towering talent"list and elevate these solo piano improvisations to the highest pinnacle...because that is where they deserve to be! This is great,great music,in my eyes,that informs and transforms me every time I listen to it...music with spirit and integrity;embedded with truth and honesty...how can you ask more of an artist than to give their all.

Dan Otto / Don Henson Keith Tippett is one of the most amazing pianists who has ever lived. His style and technique are moving in a way only he has ever achieved. Inside and outside the instrument. Favorite track: All Time, All Time.

    A reviewer at Rate Your Music calls these performances the "evil twin" of Keith Jarrett's Köln Concert, which might give you a general sense of what's to come. Tippett's spontaneous compositions use the entire piano: keys, strings, squeaky bench...everything. A music box also gets in there. The songs are possessed of a raw and immense beauty, and need to be heard to be believed.

REVIEWS

"...these outings stand out as a prime example of using extended piano techniques to great effect. Though the name of this record was eventually picked up by a co-op quartet the pianist is also part of, he casts some of his best magic and music right here. Entrancing."
--Marc Chenard, CODA

"Having these two recordings on one CD...is a gift. These solo sessions are essential not only for those all-too-few Tippett fans, but for anyone interested in either the piano or music as magical endeavor. And for those curious about Tippett, this is the very best place to start."
--Thom Jurek, All Music Guide
