Keith Tippett RIP

Postby C » 14 Jun 2020, 22:07

Very sad. He has been suffering from ill health for the last couple of years - a heart attack and a bout of pneumonia...

No detail available at present

A great pianist

Cat food, cat food, cat food again!

RIP Keith

I thinkink it was the Prog Cup where I heard something of him and it was quite good.
Need to check him out further, especially since Elton Dean was involved as well.

RIP.

God, I remember seeing this when KC appeared on TOTP - reason being I only owned two albums - KC's earlier Court of the Crimson King
and the Crazy World of Arthur Brown.

RIP Keith.

If anyone is interested, there is a colourised version on YT without any sound.

You would think some technologically adept soul would splice the two together

Maarts - this is probably the best (most accessible) place to start

From 1971 and featuring the Softs lads- Robert Wyatt, Elton Dean, Roy Babbington, Phil Howard, Marc Charig and Nick Evans.

Absolutely. I tried to fine the clip but couldn't - Keith in a white suit I recall

I posted a foreign TOTP above - sadly Keith not in a white suit but a nice clip anyway

I thought exactly that- be satisfied with the German version (although the DJ is an absolute plonker)
