The Ballroom at the 560 Music Center at Washington University
560 Trinity Ave.
University City, MO 63130

Always on the cutting edge of jazz improvisation, Matthew Shipp has, over the course of his career, developed an identifiable language of his own. His new ensemble direction blends high energy and a sense of freedom with complexly structured themes and extended, long range form.

Learning to be a jazz player at an extremley early age, Shipp moved to New York City in 1995 and was soon performing with the David S. Ware Quartet and Roscoe Mitchell’s Note Factory. He has recorded with such top flight performers as William Parker, Joe Morris and Daniel Carter.

In February 2011, Shipp released a double-disc album entitled “Art of the Improviser”. This release is “testament to Shipp’s achievements, yet it is also a continuation of the discovery in his developmental musical language.” The Chicago Tribune

Upcoming Detroit Shows

From the Bohemian in Exile:

Sunday, October 9th: Prog night with Hyrrokkin, Nick Miilevoi, El Club DJs Glenn and Mary Anne at Old Miami
Horrokkin is an avant-rock trio from Yellow Springs, OH. Guitarist Ed Ricart was most recently seen in Detroit as one third of the William Hooker Trio. Hyyrokken leans heavily into angular guitar territory with hints of Massacre, Sonny Sharrock, and 70’s European Prog Rock.

Nick Millevoi is a guitarist, composer, and teacher from Philadelphia. He is the co-leader of the avant-garde punk-jazz trio Many Arms (Engine Records, Majmua Music). Nick is also a member of progressive chamber-pop collective Make A Rising and Hassidic punk band Electric Simcha. As a sideman, Nick has toured with Discord Records recording artist Joe Lally, and has performed with Gene Coleman, Glenn Branca, and many others. He brings the cerebral end of art rock guitar to the evening’s proceedings.

Detroit’s Prog-Rock DJ wonder twins of Friday’s at El Club, Glenn and Mary Anne, spin obscure classic prog.
Doors at 9 pm; $5.

Friday, October 14th: Immigrant Suns at Cass Cafe (with original drummer Mark Sawasky!)

Their intense musical relationship spans more than 20 years and results in intuitive playing of the highest order. Trio Braam/DeJoode/Vatcher shines in short powerful pieces, pushing against tradition with consummate, dazzling skill. The trio combines a playful expansion of forms with a great adventurousness.
