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.

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

Read "Vessel in Orbit" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Ware, nel quartetto con Matthew Shipp al pianoforte e William Parker al contrabbasso. Sebbene il CD ponga sullo stesso piano ...

The recording (engineered admirably by Jim ...

Ivo Perelman Makes It Rain

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

È connaturata alla sua personalità artistica la ricerca in ogni dettaglio e sotto ogni angolazione possibile delle vene aurifere ...
