Description
Matthew Shipp's new solo piano CD "4D" is the complete synthesis and culmination of all of his past Thirsty Ear releases, with the added wrinkle of standards reinterpreted as only he could muster, while combining his own brand of composition to the mix. Matt's musical language, having been refined and mutated as his career (notably alongide Thirsty Ear's own genre defying sensibilities) has continued to grow at exponential rates, allowing Mr. Shipp to fully explore the hidden aspects of jazz.

He is an innovator of the highest level on his instrument, and offers his presentations with a poet's touch, adding lyricism and voice to his playing, without words. In his own determination to explain his musical inclination, Mr. Shipp likens his approach to "peering into the piano as a starship in it's relation to psychic space..." But it's something more to be felt than to be understood.

The end result of this recording is a fourth-dimensional sonic tapestry that fills space, but with precise contours and unpredictable sequences, adding and linking together like audible pieces in a diabolically devised puzzle. In essence, this serves as a possible view into the intangibility of the fourth dimension.
