Matthew Shipp


Performer's Website

Producer, composer, sideman, and soloist Matthew Shipp arrived in New York City 20 years ago, and in the interim has become arguably the most important player on the downtown avant garde scene. Throughout the 90s, initially with the David S. Ware quartet, then as a leader most often with bassist William Parker at his side, Shipp recorded with Roscoe Mitchell, Rob Brown, Roy Campbell, Wadada Leo Smith, Other Dimensions in Music and with violinist Mat Maneri and Parker in the Matthew Shipp String Trio. Recently, Shipp has distinguished himself as the Artistic Director of the Thirsty Ear Blue Series. Shipp's own playing blends modern classical elements with '60s-style jazz to create something wholly original and influential among his generation of improvising musicians.
