Hello good folks in or near the NYC Metro!
A quick heads up that Matthew Shipp has a residency at The Stone (New School Glass Box Theatre) this week, tonight through Saturday. Sure to be an exceptional week, I wanted to bring special attention to two of those nights here..
This Friday, May 10
MATTHEW SHIPP & DARIUS JONES DUO
A rare opportunity to bear live witness to their incredibly powerful pairing.
Of course I urge all of you to pick up on their pair of astonishing albums,
Cosmic Lieder and The Darkseid Recital (some of which was recorded at
the original Stone location, see pic above.). It has been a few years of staggering darkness since their release -&- their last live communion; so very much been brought to bear in the Lieder to be revealed on Friday.
"This engrossing union fascinates for its emotional and conceptual richness. They both lock into a game of convergence and divergence that succeeds for their forceful individuality and unforced alchemy." –BBC.com
"Combining emotional intensity with technical ingenuity, channeling the big sound of each player into structures that highlight their razor sharp reflexes,
this is also storytelling of visceral, uncompromising power." –Jazzwise
This Thursday, May 9
MATTHEW SHIPP QUARTET w/ Rob Brown, William Parker, Whit Dickey -&- special guest Steve Dalachinksy
A SNEAK preview LIVE of the inner workings of
THIS coming release on AUM Fidelity.
