'You Are Here' is a sextet formed by saxophonist Kevin Figes to perform the music of the vital Bristolian improvising and composing pianist Keith Tippett (1947-2020) and his comrades, including Elton Dean, Harry Miller, Dudu Pukwana, the Dedication Orchestra and King Crimson.
In 2023 the sextet played four brilliant concert at the Bristol Beacon, Wakefield Jazz and here at the Bristol Music Club and released their recording of the Elton Dean's Ninesense tune 'Seven for Lee' and Keith Tippett's 'Green and Orange Night Park'. Following extensive airplay and rave reviews of the record and live performances the band were invited to go back into the studio to record a full album for the Jazz in Britain label and the CD will be available later this year.
Tonight will be a joyous celebration of the music and influence of Keith Tippett and an invigorating journey into the unique sounds of British Jazz in the 1970's
