"Originally issued in 1986 as a double LP, “A loose kite...”is one of the lesser known items in Tippett’s discography. The Septet was put together in 1984 especially to play a new suite inspired by the writing of Maya Angelou. This is the only remaining document of that project.Ogun’s reissue marks the first appearance of this music on CD."
It's terrific to see this fairly obscure, mid 80s Keith Tippett project reappear on CD. This features a monster band of Brit-jazz talent, which both harkens back to Keith's original sextet of the late 60s as well as pointing forward towards Mujician. Unlike Mujician, while there are plenty of improvised passages and of course amazing solos, there's some wonderful writing and ensemble parts by these musicians. Essential for Brit-jazz/jazz fans.
