Matthew Shipp Trio

“Signature” Album Release

Singular pianist Matthew Shipp returns with his trio to celebrate the release of the group’s anticipated new album, Signature.

Tonight’s trio, featuring his regular bandmates Michael Bisio and Newman Taylor Baker, promises a powerful and unpredictable journey through sound that must be heard—and felt—to be understood.

Jazz 101, Week 6

Cool Jazz, Hard Bop, Modal Jazz, Free Jazz

As the 1940s gave way to the 1950s, Jazz developed many new offshoot styles. Cool Jazz arrived, seeking a marriage of BeBop and Swing Era music. Hard Bop sought to infuse bop with Blues and Gospel roots. Modal Jazz wanted to rebuild the music’s harmonic system completely, while Free Jazz sought to uproot many (and sometimes all!) of our preconceptions of what this music should sound like!
