Ivo Perelman & Matthew Shipp Launch First European Tour
By Kato Bookbird
Their completely improvised performances – executed with no written notes or preconceived themes – take shape with a logic and emotion that defies the total spontaneity with which they are created. The Art Of Perelman-Shipp (Leo Records) is their most ambitious project to date: seven discs released simultaneously in March 2017, six of which adds longtime collaborators to create a variety of trios and quartets. Each album takes its name from one of Saturn’s moons, in honor of the fact that both Perelman and Shipp are entering their Saturn Return (an astronomic phenomenon with astrological implications. And, like Saturn’s moons, each of these albums orbits around the saxophone-piano duo, which constitutes a binary star system all its own.
From May 19-23, Perelman and Shipp will present their first European tour in this astonishing duo format. The tour will take them from Cuba in Münster to cities including Amsterdam (Bimhuis), Brussels (L'Archiduc), Moscow (Dom Cultural Center), and Vienna (Martinschlössl).
