    Product Details


    The "Film Blues" // "Rainclouds" double A side single provides a first glimpse into one of the most intriguing and fruitful musical collaborations of recent times.

    A coming together of two generations, and undoubtedly an inspired meeting of musical minds, 'Nostalgia 77 Sessions featuring Keith and Julie Tippett' sees prodigious producer Nostalgia 77 and close contemporary Riaan Vosloo (Nostalgia 77 Octet, Twelves Trio) collaborating with British legends of experimental and improvised music, Keith and Julie Tippett. The result is an arrestingly beautiful album of original material that spans blues, jazz and soul and is threaded through with experimental flourishes that defy categorisation.

    Benedic Lamdin, the man behind the Nostalgia 77 moniker, is one of the most prolific and acutely talented producers of modern jazz music around, both as a solo artist and with his Nostalgia 77 Octet. Having won Jazz Album of the Year and the John Peel Play More Jazz Award at the BBC Worldwide Awards, he counts Gilles Peterson and Laurent Garnier among his most ardent fans. Earlier this year (also in collaboration with Riaan Vosloo) he produced the debut solo album of rising chanteuse Lizzy Parks, Tru Thoughts label-mate, and a vocalist who has worked with the Heritage Orchestra, Chris Bowden and Fink.

    Lamdin's introduction to Keith and Julie Tippett's music was a dusty copy of their 1971 LP 'Septober Energy' (written for the 50-strong band Centipede), and the sheer wealth and freedom of creative endeavour enjoyed by that pioneering group of musicians resonated strongly with him. The Tippetts' oeuvre spans more than four decades at the forefront of musical creativity. Julie (formerly Julie Driscoll) was the voice of Brian Auger's r'n'b group in the '60s, also releasing a host of solo hits that walked the line between soul and r'n'b, while Keith was the pianist at Ronnie Scott's and had his own successful free jazz groups. Their work together includes such ensembles as Mujician and Centipede, and has seen them release records on Polygram and RCA among other world renowned labels. As one of the foremost European vocalists in the field of contemporary jazz and improvised music, Julie is widely regarded for her use of the voice as an instrument, unlocking a versatility and range that is quite unique.

    Recorded in a remote location in rural Wales, the upcoming 'Nostalgia 77 Sessions...' album finds the common ground between the four musicians; it is a mixture of more traditional song arrangements and the free improvisational work which has been at the core of the Tippetts' music for all these years.

    Currently, while continuing to perform and compose, both Keith and Julie Tippett are committed to sharing their passion and experience with an emerging generation of musicians through educational projects; it was on one such teaching initiative that Riaan found himself working with Keith and the seed that grew into the 'Nostalgia 77 Sessions...' project was sown.
