Celebrated pianist Matthew Shipp joins Irish guitarist Mark O'Leary to explore the many fields of improvisation each follows, from meditative to intense discourse.

O'Leary / Shipp

O'Leary / Shipp: Labyrinth (FMR)
Label: FMR    
Released in: Great Britain    

"Celebrated pianist Matthew Shipp joins Irish guitarist Mark O'Leary for his follow up to his excellent Ellipses release on FMR with a highly successful duo meeting that heralds the Anglo-Argentinian Literary Genius Jorge Luis Borges. One of the main themes in his work was the way a story can evolve in to a complex Labyrinthine narrative, with many tributaries unfolding as the plot develops.

Mark and Matthew explore the many colloquial corridors of improvisation which manifest fromtheir collective lexicons. Meditative, intense, dynamic, even ambient in parts, it is a new discourse in the history of Piano/Guitar duo. Dedicated to the genius of Jorge Luis Borges."-FMR
