Over the last three decades, saxophonist Ivo Perelman and pianist Matthew Shipp have assembled a staggering catalog of releases. They made three albums together in the late 1990s, then pursued separate creative paths until the beginning of this decade, when one of the most explosive creative runs in jazz history began. They have released over 30 titles together, including several multi-disc sets with more to come. In addition to duo sessions, they work in all sorts of trio and quartet configurations, bringing in bassists, drummers, violinists or anyone else who seems like an interesting complement to their constantly evolving one-on-one language.
