For three-plus groundbreaking decades, out-jazz iconoclast Matthew Shipp has reigned supreme over New York City's avant-garde scene, a pioneer alongside composer giants like William Parker and John Zorn. The tireless visionary who put his stamp on now-shuttered lower Manhattan experimental hubs now brings his EV vibes uptown to Jazz at Lincoln Center. With longtime bassist Michael Bisio and new drummer Newman Taylor Baker in tow, Shipp hits Dizzy's for a victory lap celebrating a 2015 that rightfully landed him on "Best Jazz Records of 2015" everywhere. Beginning with 2012's Elastic Aspects and continuing with '14's Root of Things, To Duke (released earlier this year) and most recently with The Conduct of Jazz, Shipp and his trio continue breaking their genre’s mold with an ecstatic post-bop swing, thick with shapeshifting thrills and adventurous phraseology.
