Salute To 100001 Stars: A Tribute To Jean Genet

Declared Enemy - Shipp / Mateen / Parker / Cleaver / Lavant: Salute To 100001 Stars: A Tribute To Je (RogueArt)
Label: RogueArt    
Released in: France    


Pianist Shipp in an excellent quartet setting playing Shipp compositions in a tribute to Jean Genet. "It was by chance, during his short stay in Paris in 2000, that Matthew Shipp came across Rajak Ohanian's photograph of Jean Genet. He instantly recognized the writer, saying "Our Lady of The Flowers is one of my favourite books." And that's how it all started. Four years later, he brought together Sabeer Mateen, William Parker and Gerald Cleaver to express what Genet meant to him. Then, Denis Lavant joined them to add Genet's words to the project."- RogueArt

Includes a booklet with the copies of an unpublished Jean Genet manuscript and of the excerpt of another Jean Genet manuscript, an unpublished text by Angela Davis, a Matthew Shipp interview by Steve Dalachinsky, an unpublished text by Alexandre Pierrepont, and photos of Jean Genet and the band.



"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. Mr. Shipp has recorded a lot of albums with many labels but his 2 most enduring relationships have been with two labels. In the 1990s he recorded a number of chamber jazz cds with Hatology, a group of cds that charted a new course for jazz that, to this day, the jazz world has not realized. In the 2000s Mr Shipp has been curator and director of the label Thirsty Ear's "Blue Series" and has also recorded for them. In this collection of recordings he has generated a whole body of work that is visionary, far reaching and many faceted."
