Keith Tippett & Matthew Bourne
COVENTRY Warwick Arts Centre (Studio)
Warwick Arts Centre
Witness two of Britain’s most adventurous jazz pianists play together for the first time – on two grand pianos.
A seminal figure in the evolution of UK jazz since the 1960s, Keith Tippett has forged his own ever-evolving sound as both composer and improviser. Thirty years his junior, Matthew Bourne has similarly explored the horizons of jazz and contemporary music, on both analogue synths and the acoustic piano.
This new and remarkable musical partnership between two maverick pianists, is a meeting of like minded but distinct individuals: both are mesmerising live performers, famous for their idiosyncrasy, virtuosity, and non-conformity.
With support from Isotach, Bourne’s most recent project and album release.
