Darius Jones & Matthew Shipp
There's mucho simpatico on Cosmic Lieder, a new disc of duets between the cagey saxophonist and the provocative pianist. Even in the most turbulent moments, they share the same wavelength. Shipp's dark side dominates the music's tone (something ominous is often afoot), but the pith of the pieces and Jones's gnarled lyricism balances the stormy romance of their vivid art.
