New Matthew Shipp Book Coming on RogueArt

Source: RogueArt.

Over the course of 200 pages Singularity Codex presents the work of Shipp and his numerous collaborators within the broader jazz and free music continuum, and covers in detail the pianist’s 25 current/forthcoming albums for RogueArt (and one book with poet Steve Dalachinsky). Neither a strict biography nor a discography, this volume includes numerous interviews, photographs, and aesthetic meditations that frame the music, its connections, and surrounding philosophy and history. Whether or not you are familiar with Shipp and his work, this book is a fascinating read.
