Tippett, Keith & Julie: Couple in Spirit: Live at the Purcell Room (Ogun)
Label: Ogun    
Released in: Great Britain    

"Ogun is proud to present a new recording by internationally renowned improvisors Keith and Julie Tippett. Live at the Purcell Room captures their performance at the 2008 London Jazz Festival in a recording made by the British Broadcasting Corporation for Radio 3's "Jazz on 3" programme. Individually and collectively, Keith and Julie Tippett have shaped the cutting edge of contemporary music over the past four-and-a-half decades. Keith is an acclaimed jazz pianist, composer, band leader and arranger, whose work encompasses big bands projects Centipede, Ark and Tapestry, and ensemble freeplay with Ovary Lodge (also featuring Julie) and Derek Bailey's Company. His collaborations include projects with Robert Fripp's avant-rock band King Crimson, fellow pianist Stan Tracey and the Italian jazz orchestra Canto General.

Julie left behind a career in 60s R&B to develop her talents as a strikingly original singer-songwriter, poet and improvisor. In addition to a number of solo albums, Julie has also recorded with the Spontaneous Music Ensemble, Maggie Nicols, Working Week, Willi Kellers and Martin Archer."-Ogun
