Matthew Shipp Trio: Circular Temple

Read "Circular Temple" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

On a good day it is strenuous to stay current with pianist Matthew Shipp's imposing and voluminous output. On an even better day it is a fool's hardy errand to say the least. Now with the planned re-issuing of some of his great early deconstructions of musical thought and theory, starting here with 1990's daringly incongruous ...

Read "Mark Corroto's Best Jazz Albums Of 2022" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Read "Love In The Form Of Sacred Outrage" reviewed by Mark Corroto

History does repeat itself, violist Melanie Dyer draws from the same well of inspiration as Max Roach's We Insist! Max Roach's Freedom Now Suite (Candid, 1961). Maybe better put, history reveals Martin Luther King's arc of the moral universe has only bent a few degrees in the past sixty years. With Love In The Form Of Sacred ...
