"Book by Clifford Allen, 210 pages, in English Interviews of William Parker, Rob Brown, Whit Dickey, Joe Morris, Yuko Otomo, Michel Dorbon, Jim Clouse

A chronicle of almost 20 years of collaboration between M. Shipp and RogueArt. At the end, a book about modern/avant-garde jazz in the 21st century. Clifford Allen - Singularity Codex: Matthew Shipp On Rogueart"-Rogueart



"What I find so fascinating about this book is that even though it is about my work, it touches on so many tangents of issues related to modern jazz - the modern art world - the metaphysics of jazz language - the sociology of all this - the revivification of jazz avant- garde language that started happening in the Lower East Side before I moved to NYC, etc. etc. etc. etc. This book goes way beyond me. That I can be a conduit for this makes me proud.

That Cliord Allen is a great writer who can bring the nexus of all this together makes me feel fortunate."-Matthew Shipp
