Keith Tippett has suffered a heart attack, followed by complications from pneumonia. Although the 71 year old pianist has returned home, he is unable to work for the foreseeable future. Now two funds have been set up to help with living costs.
Hazel Miller of Ogun Records is collecting PayPal donations to be sent to the musician directly; and saxophonist and composer Martin Archer, owner of Discus Music, has offered him all the proceeds from Tippett’s 2016 release The Nine Dances Of Patrick O’Gonogon.
