Matthew Shipp was born December 7, 1960 in Wilmington, Delaware. He started piano at 5 years old with the
regular piano lessons most kids have experienced. He fell in love with jazz at 12 years old. After moving to New
York in 1984 he quickly became one of the leading lights in the New York jazz scene. He was a sideman in the
David S. Ware quartet and also for Roscoe Mitchell's Note Factory before making the decision to concentrate on
his own music.
Mr Shipp has reached the holy grail of jazz in that he possesses a unique style on his instrument that is all of his own- and he's one of the few in jazz that can say so.
