descriptions, reviews, &c.

"There's the same very fast transference of signals. There's the very complex type of pattern action. There's the same mixture of improvisation and discipline...but the unknown is being unfolded at really fast rates." Which certainly holds true for this no-nonsense, cinema verite-live set from New York's Roulette performance space, recorded in March 1993 and originally issued on the small Brinkman Records label. The more obvious references to the free jazz tradition in these two extended pieces have since been sublimated in Shipp's group work, and his compositional impulses have flourished may be witnessed on the five discs Shipp has been recording for Hat Hut since 1996, CDs which have strengthened Shipp's position as one of the premier piano improvisors of our day. The piano would like to thank Matthew Shipp."-Peter Niklas Wilson
