Join us for this one-night-only performance by the prolific and masterful pianist Matthew Shipp at the Elebash Recital Hall. 

Poet Steve Dalachinsky on "Matthew Shipp -- LOGOS CHART",  wrote: "heaven and earth shall pass away but these mathematical frequencies on the piano shall not"

Critic John Garratt  writes that Shipp's album Codebreaker,  is the sound of Shipp gliding on autopilot, letting his subconscious do the talking. That it sounds so musical and reflective is a testament to his command of the instrument, improvisational skills, and ability to tap into what lies beneath.
