The Keith Tippett Group
Please note, two new remastered releases on Esoteric Recordings.
We are talking about two classic British jazz releases, Keith Tippet Group´s "You are here...I am there" (1970) and "Dedicated to you, but you weren´t listening" (1971).
The band on the first album: Keith Tippett (p), Elton Dean (as), Marc Charig (cornet), Jeff Clyne (bass), Nick Evans (tb) and Alan Jackson (dr).
The band on "Dedicated to you...": Keith Tippett (p), Elton Dean (as), Marc Charig (Cornet), Nick Evans (tb), Roy Babbington (b), Neville Whitehead (b), Robert Wyatt (dr, and some voc), Phil Howard (dr) and Bryan Spring (dr).
Great big band-impro-jazz-rock (oh come on, it´s jazz, don´t get mad at me), with newly written essays by Sid Smith.
I got my copies quite cheap from Amazon (UK), but if you only want one of them, get "Dedicted to you..", with Roger Dean cover and all!
