"Matthew Shipp is the American Piano Jazz Mature Secret" as printed in Norway's biggest newspaper, Aftenposten. Continuing..."In the shadow of Cecil Taylor and Keith Jarrett, he has played out his individuality through three decades. He can be described as a cross between the two giants, but he exceeds both, with it's ownership of the blues and the free expression's inherent possibilities." Powerful thoughts from afar but strikingly rich in their poignant affirmation of Shipp's talent. Mr. Shipp is no stranger to recording and no stranger to receiving accolades from the press. But with the release of "The Conduct of Jazz", one will hear with remarkable clarity that these words are not just prophetic but are exceedingly apt for a player whose time has come.
