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Includes a booklet with the copies of an unpublished Jean Genet manuscript and of the excerpt of another Jean Genet manuscript, an unpublished text by Angela Davis, a Matthew Shipp interview by Steve Dalachinsky, an unpublished text by Alexandre Pierrepont, and photos of Jean Genet and the band.
