The Paul Dunmall Quartet + The Keith Tippett Celebration Orchestra

A Celebration of Keith Tippett

This event has passed.

As part of A Celebration of Keith Tippett, St. George’s Bristol presents a session in two parts featuring two sets of musicians closely associated with the late musician – The Paul Dunmall Quartet & The Keith Tippett Celebration Orchestra.

Please Note – booking the livestream ticket allows you to view the livestream of all Keith Tippett Celebration concerts taking place on Saturday 2 October

The Paul Dunmall Quartet

Paul Dunmall saxophones, clarinets, bagpipes
Paul Rogers double bass
Liam Noble piano
Mark Sanders drums

Although there can be no way of the Pauls Dunmall and Rogers replicating the three decades of unique improvisation they shared with the late lamented Tony Levin and Keith Tippett in Mujician, this quartet brings them the opportunity to explore two other close musical relationships in the same spirit of freedom, empathy and mutual understanding.

As a fitting finale to the tributes to Keith Tippett and a celebration of his life and work, Kevin Figes has assembled this unique big band, a format that Keith loved and for which he composed some of his most memorable and anthemic works. The Celebration Orchestra brings together many of the musicians who played with Keith in large ensembles and will feature music from his original charts (including Centipede’s Septober Energy) as well as some of his arrangements for The Dedication Orchestra.
