✈

The first-ever solo album from Matthew Shipp – a set that came as quite a revelation back in the 90s, and one that still sounds incredibly solid all these many years later! Shipp reveals himself as a very fresh voice on his instrument – a musician who grew up in a generation already aware of the freedoms of Cecil Taylor and the European scene – but one who also has a sense of tone and structure that really set him apart – a mode that's as distinct for Shipp as the talents of Muhal Richard Abrams were to that musician, but with a much more personal approach – big ideas coming through smaller moments, which is what keeps the album's selection of 14 shorter tunes completely captivating all the way through. Titles include "Harmonic Oscillator", "Temperate Zone", "The Highway", "Algebraic Boogie", "Nerve Signals", "Dance Of The Blue Atoms", and "Bop Abyss".  © 1996-2022, 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 have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

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 list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

There's no sense of "transition" here – as the album's an incredibly solid one, and stands with John Coltrane's best mid 60s work for Impulse – even if the session wasn't issued by the label until after his early death! The work builds strongly on the Love Supreme vibe – ... CD
