From Burning Ambulance:

Pianist Matthew Shipp‘s current trio, featuring bassist Michael Bisio and drummer Whit Dickey, have two new albums out—neither of which is on Shipp’s longtime label, Thirsty Ear. Root of Things is on the newish Relative Pitch label, and The Other Edge, on which they back saxophonist Ivo Perelman—to whom the disc is credited—is on Leo. (When I asked Shipp about this, he explained that he’s still very much on Thirsty Ear, and will in fact be releasing a solo album through them later this year, but had only just put out a solo album—Piano Sutras—in September 2013, so chose to issue Root of Things elsewhere.)
