Remembering the late, great pianist Keith Tippett and an aptly titled track, Full On, by Jah Wobble and Evan Parker, that exudes an endless energy.
As well as his startling skill as an improviser, Keith was known for his ability to bring people together, and to bring out the best in them. We hear an archive interview with Keith discussing his legendary solo performances with music from his album The Dartington Concert from 1992.
Also in the show an aptly titled track, Full On, by Jah Wobble and Evan Parker, that exudes an endless energy. There’s new music by the cellist Lucy Railton called Lament in Three Parts and a piece by Kim’s all-time favourite band, Amok Amor. Featuring Christian Lillinger (drums), Petter Eldh (bass), Wanja Slavin (alto sax) and Peter Evans (trumpet), Amok Amor places elements of classical avant-garde and hip-hop on top of a solid jazz and improvised music foundation.
