Keith Tippett / Andy Sheppard
66 Shades Of Lipstick

Album UK 1990 on Editions EG label
Jazz (Free Improvisation, Free Jazz)

There Should be no artistic problem with pre-conceived compostion or spontaneous composition (total imporvisation). Both are part of the complete music. Andy and I imposed one rule upon ourselves before entering the studio. That rule being that no musical preparation was to be made individually or collectively. The music had to be carved like sculpture from the air. After three days the sculpture was completed. May music never just become another way of making money. Keith Tippett. July 1990 This album is dedicated to The Blue Notes Recorded at Temple Music Studios, April 9-11, 1990 Mixed at the Courthouse, June 26-28, 1990 Shades 10 and 12 have been omitted from the vinyl pressing to avoid the deterioration of the lower frequency response on this album. The piano used throughout the recording demonstrated on a spectrum analyser frequencies below 80hz. Andy Sheppard appears courtesey of Antilles Records. Management for Andy Sheppard by Serious Productions 42 Old Compton Street, London W1V 5PB.
