Composer / pianist Tippett needs little introduction to those with an ear to the ground in the world of creative music.  Appearing initially on the London jazz scene in the 1960's, Keith quickly forged a reputation as a formidable player, bandleader and composer.  His large scale work Septober Energy for the 50 piece ensemble Centipede remains a benchmark recording in the history of this music.  Subsequently leading ensembles as diverse as Mujician, Ovary Lodge, his duo work with Julie Tippetts plus appearances as an improvising piano soloist have consolidated his position as a major figure in both improvised and composed music.  In 2016 he remains as active as ever on the international stage.
