Whit Dickey/William Parker/Matthew ShippVillage Mothership ... LP
Tao Forms, 2021. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
That's a pretty enticing title, and the record's got a pretty enticing sound as well – fantastic long-spun lines from the trio of Matthew Shipp on piano, William Parker on bass, and Whit Dickey on drums – all players with a long history together, and a perfectly-matched sound on the record! Shipp is at his most spiritual here – really reveling in that new sense of warmth that's graced his more recent material – a quality that Parker is only happy to support and emphasize, while Dickey proves once again that he can be an incredibly versatile talent on the drum kit – sometimes almost feeling like a different player on each different track on the record. Titles include "Down Void Way", "Nothing & A Thing", "Whirling In The Void", "Village Mothership", and "Nothingness". LP, Vinyl record album

Kirk Knuffke TrioGravity Without Airs ... CD
Tao Forms, 2022. New Copy 2CDs ... $18.99 20.99
The poetic title here is wonderfully well-suited to the album – as there's a free-floating, spacious quality to the music – yet one that's very different than some of the softer sessions that sort of reference might make you expect! Cornet player Kirk Knuffke always has a great sense of space in his music – and in this trio, it really seems to do a lot to the piano of Matthew Shipp, who can be a master of understatement at times, with really quietly brooding sounds on the keys – matched by the perfect energy of bassist Michael Bisio, who is exactly the right choice for this outing. If you know some of Knuffke's other work, you'll be surprised here – as there's more of an edge, and the session really builds a bridge to the world of Shipp, while finding this great spot in the middle for both to exist – on titles that include "Time Is Another River", "Paint Pale Silver", "Heal The Roses", "Today for Today", "Blinds", "June Stretched", "Between Today & May", "Stars Go Up", and "The Water Will Win".

James Brandon LewisJesup Wagon ... CD
Tao Forms, 2021. New Copy ... $12.99 14.99
Maybe the strongest creative statement to date from tenorist James Brandon Lewis – an album of work inspired by the legacy of George Washington Carver – served up here with a sense of depth that's certain to open even more doors for Lewis in years to come! There's a majesty to the music that's apparent in the very first notes, and which keeps on coming as each song unfurls – that search for truth talked about in Carver's writings, quested here with a quintet that includes William Parker on bass, Chad Taylor on drums, Kirk Knuffke on cornet, and Chris Hoffman on cello! The energy of Parker and Taylor is sublime – and makes for a setting that's different than other recent records we've heard from Knuffke, who also seems to draw new currents of sonic inspiration from the gentle but powerful use of the cello. The tenor has a raw, sharp edge throughout – a personality that would be striking, even without the beautiful setting of Lewis' original material – and titles include "Lowlands Of Sorrow", "Jesup Wagon", "Experiment Station", "Fallen Flowers", "Seer", and "Arachis".

Matthew ShippCodebreaker ... CD
Tao Forms, 2021. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
The title and cover of this one might make you expect a somewhat academic approach – but pianist Matthew Shipp is at his warmest and most organic here – spinning out a series of solo pieces that seem to unlock a whole new sense of poetry in his music! There's a really special vibe going on here – a key part of the later life maturation and change that has been gracing Shipp's music for a number of years, but seen up-close and very personal throughout the set – almost as if some great cosmic event happened to the pianist, and allowed him to understand his instrument even more than ever before. Titles include "Code Swing", "Disc", "Letter From The Galaxy", "Green Man", "The Tunnel", "Stomp To The Galaxy", and "Spiderweb". CD

✨✧ Whit DickeyRoot Perspectives ... CD
Tao Forms, 2022. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An album of wonderfully moody brilliance from drummer Whit Dickey – and a set that really makes the most of its fantastic lineup, which includes Tony Malaby on tenor, Matthew Shipp on piano, and Brandon Lopez on bass! The album's almost worth it alone for the work of Malaby and Shipp – who often have a way of making us feel like they're circling around each other, measuring each other up – really taking their time as they build things up, with Dickey egging them on in the way that he handles the drums! Lopez acts as a subtle but important glue to the whole session – and the set features four long titles, "Supernova", "Swamp Petals", "Starship Lotus", and "Doomsday Equation". CD
