Ivo Perelman | Matthew Shipp
With 55 albums now under his name, Perelman’s saxophone creations have perhaps never had more emotional resonance. With this double CD dedicated to the memory of Greek diva Maria Callas, Ivo Perelman and Matthew Shipp open a new chapter in their musical partnership. It is not just two improvising musicians with telepathic understanding of each other. It goes beyond that. There are many brilliant examples of saxophone-piano duets but this one is different. It is a kind of a new genre. The flow of music is so natural, so organic, there are not two but one mind at work.
