Matthew Shipp : Nu Bop
[ the blue series ]

   $14.98      
Matthew Shipp's follow-up to the critically acclaimed, #1 CMJjazz record, New Orbit. Shipp set out to build a platform of acoustic and electronic rhythm figures to serve as a backdrop for a canvas of organic compositions based on improvisational impulses. For more than a decade, Shipp has broken barriers and genre with his original style. In Nu Bop, he continues to challenge the limits and preconceptions of jazz with this explosive, beats-driven modern jazz recording. Bassist William Parker takes on the unusual role as funk meister. Reedman Daniel Carter turns in soaring performances that seem to defy gravity. And Guiellermo E. Brown emerges by driving electronic beats with the best of modern drumming, thereby defining of new era of percussion. Interwoven into the fabric is Chris Flam's (DJ Spooky, A Guy Called Gerald) programming insights and deft editing skills. Throughout it all, Shipp is still Shipp.

The sheer breadth of Shipp's ideas, the ingenuity of his writing and the individuality of his pianism make Nu Bop one of the more important releases of the year and reaffirm Shipp's position at the forefront of jazz innovation. - Chicago Tribune
