Solo Sessions

For this edition of New Sounds, pianist/composer Matthew Shipp presents music from his latest album of nu-jazz, “One.” His first collection of original solo material in nearly a decade, (his last solo outing was a record of standards, not his own works), Shipp gleefully explores and savors where the music might take him, rather than resorting to pianistic pyrotechnics. “One” is not all swirling contemplative eddies, however, there is a streak of volatility in the tune “Electro Magnetism,” where Shipp’s fierce, low-end tones “threaten to shake the song loose from its floorboards.” (PitchforkMedia.com)
