Keith Tippett

What's an alumni? Is that what silver foil is made of? No, you buffoon - this is where you post about ex-members of the band.

Keith Tippett

Postby Owen on Thu Dec 01, 2005 10:20 am

My favourite KC alumni, so I had to start this thread with reference to a previously unknown (to me) KT/RF collaboration that has just been added to the archives at Nisimoto's excellent http://members.aol.com/kingcrimsonlive/ site.

ROBERT FRIPP and KEITH TIPPETT:
DANDELION

Recorded live at the Institute Of Contemporary Arts, London, England, U.K on September 28, 1980

Improvisation #1 (Tippett)
Improvisation #2 (Fripp)
Improvisation #3 (Fripp)
Improvisation #4 (Fripp)
Improvisation #5 (Fripp)
Improvisation #6 (Fripp/Tippett)
Improvisation #7 (Fripp/Tippett)
Improvisation #8 (Fripp/Tippett)


It's a bootleg of course, but what a trip that must have been.

I hate to say it, but I would actually consider paying to get a copy of this...

... now, where did I put my pirate's hat?

Cheers,
O!

That's old. That bootleg's been available on dimeadozen for ages. Do you want a copy, Owen?

That's track 5 as a teaser. I'm probably going to get bollocked for it, but I guess someone's got to be the rebel around here (and it sure ain't Owen). :roll:

Need I answer that?

Tell me, do Tippett and Fripp really improvise *together* for the last three tracks, as the credits would have me believe?

I asked Tippett expert, and Fripp collector extraordinaire Emanual "Manny Lunch" Maris about this yesterday and he is under the impression that the two only performed seperately on this occassion... but he has yet to acquire this set himself either.

So???

Oh, and cheers for the taster.

Is anyone familar with percussionist Frank Perry?

Bill Bruford spoke very highly of him the December 1978/January 1979 edition of Modern Drummer magazine and remarked that he was with Keith Tippett at the time.

Could this guy be the needed missing ingredient in getting the current line-up of King Crimson some fresh ideas and a new direction?

In other words, another Jamie Muir (or similar)?

Frank Perry is an amazing percussionist. Nothing like Jamie Muir really though. Far too precise and refined.

Check out KT's Blueprint ( which is in effect Ovary Lodge Zero) and the two proper Ovary Lodge albums (on RCA and Ogun, both deleted at the moment) to hear his work. Other than that, I think he has released some stuff through FMR though I am no expert.

Cheers,

Thanks Owen!

Man! :shock: This guy is deep! :) Heavy man, heavyyyyyy! :)


Seriously, though. What an all around artist! Interesting man, that's for sure. They just don't make 'em like him anymore.
Another purist who has never been seen in the "music mass media machine"!

I noticed he played with Derek Bailey who I know that Jamie played with as well.

Some similarities with Jamie. Paints too! Interesting. Jamie is also another deep, heavy, artist type.

But then again, a lot of percussionists are! :wink:

Thanks again Owen. :)
