Matthew Shipp -]|[- THE ART OF THE IMPROVISER (2xCD) – [Thirsty Ear, 2011]
“The Art of the Improviser”, a 2XCD, is Shipp’s most audacious attempt yet to answer the enigmatic question of what it means to be a modern jazz musician. Already having explored the possibilities of electronically infused jazz on critically acclaimed projects with the likes of DJ Spooky, Scanner, and Anti-Pop Consortium, Shipp revisits an acoustic sound for this fearless voyage into the psyche of the improviser.
Shipp’s “idiosyncratic genius” shines through on this album, explaining once again why he is “well on his way to becoming one of the timeless giants of jazz’ (Jazz-iz). –Amazon.com
