Matthew Shipp Announces Presidential Campaign

Read "Matthew Shipp Announces Presidential Campaign" reviewed by Mark Corroto

I like to think about Matthew Shipp's music in the same light as that of Eric Dolphy and Charlie Parker. If both artists, Bird and Dolphy, had the level of support from critics and listeners that they currently command while they were still alive, the pair would have been wealthy. Okay, that plus honest record companies ...

David S. Ware/Matthew Shipp: Live in Sant’Anna Arresi, 2004

Read "Live in Sant’Anna Arresi, 2004" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Describing David S. Ware as a maverick would be a gimmicky shortcut around the depth of the late saxophonist's vision. Outside of John Coltrane we have not seen a Ware contemporary with more depth of spirituality, presented in such a visceral way. Similarly, Matthew Shipp employs a type of unimaginable creative mysticism that transcends technique and ...

David S. Ware/Matthew Shipp: Live in Sant'Anna Arresi 2004

Read "Live in Sant'Anna Arresi 2004" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In every mystical film we see, like A Sea Of Trees and A Dog's Purpose or book we read--A Sudden Light by Garth Stein or Life After Life by Kate Atkinson, the departed find a way to communicate with the living. As humans, we desire this experience. Fortunately, music affords us this opportunity at just about ...

Read "Mark F. Turner's Best of 2013" reviewed by Mark F. Turner

Jazz keeps growing and evolving through all of its permutations and 2013 was another stellar year of music.

Dopo essere stato abbastanza presente nelle vicende concertistiche italiche di qualche anno fa [specialmente nel quartetto di David S. Ware e in alcuni progetti di Matthew Shipp], del batterista Guillermo E. Brown si erano un po' perse le tracce.

Matthew Shipp: Shipp Shifts

Read "Matthew Shipp: Shipp Shifts" reviewed by Chris Rich

Pianist Matthew Shipp's artistic collaboration community is a counterpart to his business community. It is its own ecosystem of multidisciplinary work, scholarly conversations and mentorship.

The Trio

The trio is Shipp's main vehicle. It is, by turns, his midnight train, his slow boat to China and a way of flying home. It takes a ...

David S. Ware: Gravitation

Read "David S. Ware: Gravitation" reviewed by Martin Longley

It wasn't the kidney transplant that brought saxophonist David S. Ware very close to wheelchair confinement. Last September (2009), there were early signs of organ rejection, so he was placed on a course of steroids. These came with side effects that were more debilitating than last year's operation itself. Since then, Ware has been in a ...
