Monday Long Song

Pianist Keith Tippett, who died last week at the age of 72, has been a hugely respected pillar of  British jazz, jazz-rock and prog since the early 1970s. Robert Fripp hired him to play on three early King Crimson albums 'In the Wake of Poseidon', 'Lizard' and 'Islands' and also produced two of Tippett's own long players, 'Blueprint' in 1972 and 'Ovary Lodge' the following year. The contemplative 'Song' opens proceedings on 'Blueprint'.

I like that Swede.

When I was 14/15 I had In The Wake Of Poseidon and Islands if you played them to me now I don't think I would recognise a single track. I do remember In The Wake of Poseidon had a textured cover

I have never knowingly listened to King Crimson and am about to lose that particular cherry.

Thanks for this, it's a beautiful way to remember Tippett, he will be missed.
