Matthew Shipp & Mat Walerian Duo/The Uppercut: Live At Okuden

Read "Live At Okuden" reviewed by Matthew Aquiline

Forming a duo in jazz can amount to a daunting task. There's simply no hiding; with arrangements so sparse, possibility is boundless and subtleties are fully exposed. This formless atmosphere requires able musicians who can immerse themselves in their instruments and in turn, feed off each other to eventually flourish on a singular wavelength. The innovators ...

Toxic: Mat Walerian/Matthew Shipp/William Parker: This Is Beautiful Because We Are Beautiful People

Matthew Shipp: Invisible Touch At Taktlos Zurich

Read "Invisible Touch At Taktlos Zurich" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Pianist Matthew Shipp is prolific. Under his own name and in collaboration with with numerous other free-thinking jazzers--saxophonist Ivo Perlman in the forefront of these--CD releases seem to pour out of him. His best under his own name comes in the trio/duo/solo format. Piano Sutras (Thirsty Ear, 2013); The Conduct Of Jazz (Thirsty Ear, 2013); Piano ...

Big Ears Festival
Knoxville, TN

Knoxville's Big Ears Festival expanded to a full four days this year, giving it more time to go its expected merry, eclectic way. In a break with usual practice, there was no official Composer in Residence. That distinction could have gone to Gavin Bryars ...
