Free improvising saxophonist Ivo Perelman, pianist Matthew Shipp, and drummer Whit Dickey spin listenable joy out of thin air. Jazz originality doesn’t have to be forbidding.
Veteran drummer from New York's creative music scene, Whit Dickey combines two quartets that pose so many of the key questions about purely improvised music.
A trio of viola, piano, and drums plays a recital of total improvisation, but the adventure is beautiful, focused, cohesive. Recommended to any listener with a taste for the (slightly) different.
