Keith Tippett Fund


Keith Tippett, a pianist who has long been a key figure in improvisational and free music  recently suffered a heart attack, followed by complications from pneumonia. While Tippet is now home, he is unable to work for the foreseeable future. Two funds have been set up to help with living costs.

Hazel Miller of Ogun Records has set up a collection for 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.

Read more about how you can help out, here, at The Wire. Donations can be made here.

  1. The link to Ogun Records is not to Hazel Miller's label but to different Ogun Records

    This is the correct label but I don't see anything about a Tippett fund

    There is a Paypal address on the "Contact Us" link
