BOROMIR, SAID KEITH TIPPETT'S DARTINGTON CONCERT RECORDED 1990
RELEASED 1992 , OOP
You may have this - it's solo piano, a single track of 47 mins "one for dudu", which some people may find too daunting.You may know more about him than I do sotise, but he is perhaps more familiar to people as pianist in King Crimson in the 70s, and for his big orchestral arrangements like Centipede. Long-time married to jazz singer Julie Tippett - formerly Driscoll, whom we all know from Brian Auger Trinity and Wheels Of Fire. There was an example of one of his small group recordings (Nicra - Listen/Hear) posted on jizzrelics blog site a couple of months ago, which I can recommend.

thanks for this one B, i do have it(on tape) and its great, one of his best solo recordings.
as i recall tippett also made a couple of great fusion albums for the vertigo lable in the early seventies, but yeah i know him mostly through his acoustic jazz and free improv records, and ive liked all ive heard.
i confess to rather liking king crimson too, and in some small way albums like "lizard "were an introduction to jazz content one didnt expect on rock albums.
tippetts solo "cat food" may well have been a generations intro to free jazz.
