Artist Biographies:

"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."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"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
