Matthew Shipp and Michael Bisio released Live In Seattle LP in 2016 through Arena Music Promotion, recorded for International Jazz Day in 2015 at Seattles’ The Church. The album is a mix of original and covers, the latter of special note for originality in delivery. Opening piece ‘Regeneration’ is a musical chase between the two, with Shipp leading, then straight into ‘Gamma Ray’, which has its’ own direction despite many changes in tempo and sound. Covers ‘My Funny Valentine’ and the Roberta Flack/Donny Hathaway hit “Where Is The Love” are explored sensitively and with unique diversions from the treatment of the original tracks.

Shipp and Bisio share symmetry from their long partnership within the Matthew Shipp Trio since 2009 and other side projects. Together they form impressionistic points and counterpoints which make for an equal, savvy and dextrous jazz footprint. The way these two play to each others strengths is inspiring: Shipp defines harmonic shapes within the free jazz echelon, and Bisio provides a meter or rhythm that grounds each track.

The album is a mix of original and covers, the latter of special note for originality in delivery. Opening piece ‘Regeneration’ is a musical chase between the two, with Shipp leading, then straight into ‘Gamma Ray’, which has its’ own direction despite many changes in tempo and sound.

Covers ‘My Funny Valentine’ and the Roberta Flack/Donny Hathaway hit “Where Is The Love” are explored sensitively and with unique diversions from the treatment of the original tracks.
