EXCLUSIVE! (FMP CD 012) http://www.fmp-label.de/fmplabel/catalog2/fmpcd012.html . An ocean of sound emanates from Keith Tippett's piano during this 1987 concert. As the title indicates, it's the third such solo recital to get the "Mujician" marker, and his last solo statement on record until a 1994 Victo release. Spellbinding, sprawling, and capable of generating beauty from both the inside and outside of his instrument, Mujician III marks a major high point of Tippett's considerable discography.
"It may well be that in the future the cycle of three Mujician albums (also FMP SAJ-37 and SAJ-55) will be regarded as among the most self-consistent and beautiful solo improvisations of the 1980s and a significant intervention in the reprogramming of piano syntax.... unmistakably beautiful." -- Brian Morton, The Wire
"The last — and perhaps most brilliant — part in a trilogy of solo works by British pianist and composer Keith Tippett.... In essence, a work of genius any way you carve it." -- Thom Jurek, All Music Guide, 4½ stars
Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD: 4 stars.
