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 ...

Cooper-Moore: Catharsis and Creation in Community Spirit

Read "Cooper-Moore: Catharsis and Creation in Community Spirit" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

It's tempting to think of a life in music as a linear story with a beginning, middle and end, because that's the way life is: we are born, we live, and then we die. In this narrative, one could assume there will be highs and lows and masterpieces might emerge out of a misty fog of ...

James Brandon Lewis: An Unruly Manifesto

Read "An Unruly Manifesto" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The revolution will not be televised. Those words by Gil Scott-Heron from 1970 are more relevant to today's jazz revolution than any time since the mid-1990s, when conservatively-dressed youngsters mimicked the post-bop of the 1960s and were promoted as liberators. More recently, the touted saviors rehash a quasi-spiritual fusion that stands in for à la mode ...

Read "Conference Of The Mat/ts" reviewed by Mark Corroto

There have been 7,128 days that have passed since Mat Maneri and Matthew Shipp have recorded a duo together, but who's counting? I guess we are. The Conference Of The Mat/ts session from November of 2017 may have followed Gravitational Systems (Hatology, 2000) by 19 years, 6 months and 4 days, but the pair have been ...

The Song Poetry of William Parker

Read "The Song Poetry of William Parker" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

The voice is close to the essence of what it means to be human. Through the voice, we express ourselves and sing our sorrow. It goes back a long way to hymns, blues, arias and standards. Through the tunes we tune in to ourselves and forget our daily strife.

When songs are best, ...

23rd Annual Vision Festival
Roulette
New York, NY
May 23-28, 2018

Introduction The Vision Festival somewhat surprisingly but reassuringly stands proud as the longest-lived annually produced jazz festival in New York. While the central plank remains what the Festival terms avant jazz, it's interspersed with poetry, dance, art, and ...

What's more, he has been consistently for the last four decades. The William Parker Sessionography: A Work in Progress by Rick Lopez clocks ...
