CD

✈
Two sides of zero from Matthew Shipp – one CD of solo piano material, and a second disc that features spoken Shipp delivering "A Lecture On Nothingness"! As you might guess, we're most moved by the piano work – which is wonderful, and seems to have Matthew rediscovering some of his warmer elements, while still keeping things very angular, experimental, and full of surprise! There's these subtle colors here that could sometimes be missing from Shipp's music in points over the past decade or two – and there's some especially beautiful moments that almost have him working in territory of Herbie Nichols or Thelonious Monk – with lots of beautiful angles and shapes from the piano. Titles include "Zero Skip & A Jump", "Zero", "Abyss Before Zero", "After Zero", "Pattern Emerge", "Cosmic Sea", and "Zero Subtract From Jazz".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.
