Matthew Shipp's latest disc is called I've Been to Many Places, and it's true: Since the late ’80s, the unclassifiable pianist has traveled the globe and traversed the stylistic map. In recent years he's narrowed his focus a bit, concentrating on his working trio, a select few collaborations and solo work. As on the new album, you'll hear him in the latter context here, presenting riveting, oblique improvisations and potently Shipp-ized takes on standards.
