An extended and passionate work from NYC saxophonist Ivo Perelman, recorded at a studio session intended as a trio with drummer Cleaver and pianist Shipp, but from a scheduling mixup, serendipitously evolved into a quartet with the addition of William Parker on bass.

Perelman, Ivo / Matthew Shipp / William Parker / Gerald Cleaver: Serendipity (Leo)
Label: Leo    
Released in: Great Britain    


"..supreme..brilliant..passionate abstractionist, Ivo's playing reconcile the emotional charge with technical agility and intellectual sophistication with a rare grace" Free Jazz Alchemist. "One of the most distinctive and imposing tenor sax voices to come along in years." DownBeat. "...nothing less than miraculous... no one in the USA is playing and composing jazz with as much cross-cultural imagination as Mr. Perelman... a vital contribution to jazz history..." Norman Weinstein. "Ivo's virtuosity and individual sound tremendously lyrical has created a world within the Avant-garde that is all his own, unlike of anybody else."-Gary Giddins



"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."
