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 ...

Ivo Perelman: Strings 1

Read "Strings 1" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Try to keep up sports fans, Ivo Perelman has switched directions once again. It's not that he has quit music to become a soccer star. The tenor saxophonist has more recently taken a dive into string quartets, recording a dozen or so sessions with bowing, plucking, and pizzicato-minded musicians. Strings 1 is the introduction. If this ...

Matthew Shipp Quartet: Sonic Fiction

Read "Sonic Fiction" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

The ESP-Disk label simultaneously has released two distinctly different leader dates from Matthew Shipp. Zero is an excellent solo piano album, and here, we have Shipp's namesake quartet on the ten-track Sonic Fiction. The shared deference and camaraderie in this free-spirited outing allows for an appreciation of even the slightest details and distinctions--elements that can easily ...

Whit Dickey, Mat Maneri, Matthew Shipp: Vessel in Orbit

Read "Vessel in Orbit" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Il vascello in orbita, Vessel In Orbit, è un'immagine vivida per questa nuova realizzazione del batterista Whit Dickey, solista che fin dagli anni Novanta ha legato le proprie audaci navigazioni alla galassia del compianto David S. Ware, nel quartetto con Matthew Shipp al pianoforte e William Parker al contrabbasso. Sebbene il CD ponga sullo stesso piano ...

Whit Dickey: Vessel in Orbit

Read "Vessel in Orbit" reviewed by Don Phipps

From the first chord struck on “Spaceship 9" by pianist Matthew Shipp, Vessel in Orbit demonstrates the epitome of seasoned and extremely talented musicians improvising together. This trio, led by drummer Whit Dickey, provides musical compositions and improvisations that are at once eerie, dark, foreboding, yet hauntingly beautiful.

The recording (engineered admirably by Jim ...

Ivo Perelman Makes It Rain

Read "Ivo Perelman Makes It Rain" reviewed by Mark Corroto

If music was sports, then Ivo Perelman would be baseball and most other musicians football. Where football's regular season is 16 games, baseball plays 162. Likewise, most musicians release one album every year or two, but Perelman has averaged seven titles per year for the last seven years. His 2017 Leo Records output is thirteen (fourteen, ...

Read "In Gardens 2017 - Avant Jazz Outdoors in New York City" reviewed by John Sharpe

While the NYC-based artist lead co-operative Arts For Art might be best known for putting on the annual Vision Festival, that's by no means the full extent of its activities. One regular event among the year's schedule is the In Gardens concert series. As the name suggests, this entails presenting music in public open spaces in ...
