Matthew Shipp: Sonic Fiction

Read "Sonic Fiction" reviewed by Don Phipps

Prolific composer and pianist Matthew Shipp demonstrates his craft on Sonic Fiction, an album chock full of bluesy, quirky, sonic landscapes that suggest a late-night visit to a Tom Waits' greasy spoon diner or a starless midnight walk along a creaky fisherman's wharf.

Georg Graewe/Ernst Reijseger/Gerry Hemingway: Sonic Fiction

Read "Sonic Fiction" reviewed by Marc Medwin

This long-standing and prolific international trio's debut finally gets the reissue treatment. Still quite active and stylistically amorphous, the group's first statement remains a bold one, establishing a collective aesthetic that defied boundary and categorization while making its place in history clear. The second part of “Alien Corn" is as fine a point of departure as ...

Sonic Fiction: Powerful Medicine

Read "Powerful Medicine" reviewed by John Kelman

Sometimes location is everything. Vibraphonist/percussionist Daryl Pratt was originally born in the States, but he relocated to Australia in the '80s, where he has enjoyed a full career as performer, composer, and educator. But while he's well-known in his part of the world, he's less so elsewhere. One wonders where he'd be today had he remained ...

Sonic Fiction: Changing with The Times

Read "Changing with The Times" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Sonic Fiction is a Sydney, Australia based unit and quoting from the press release “.... Changing With The Times reflects the band's meshing of new western art music, jazz and rock with geographical musical threads from Ghana, South India and Java."

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
