“Well on his way to becoming one of the timeless giants of jazz” TheNewFaceOfJazz 

Matthew Shipp is a great jazz pianist, usually classified as a free jazz player, but in many ways his playing remains closer to that of his first influence Bud Powell than to free jazz pianists such as Cecil Taylor. The trio has Mike Bisio on bass and Whit Dickey on drums, and has its own original take on group improvisation. A wonderful opportunity to see this internationally-acclaimed visionary live on the Band on the Wall stage.
