Roscoe Mitchell, member of AACM from its early stage and founding member of Art Ensemble of Chicago is a living legend, a national treasure, involved in whether it as a solo, a duet, an ensemble or a classical music situation. Matthew Shipp, definitely a legend in his own right as well, play in many configurations witnessing his impressively brilliant creative devolvement. The experience seeing these musicians play live is equivalent to seeing/hearing Bach, Beethoven and Chopin play live if such a thing were still possible.
Here we are holding the gift of a recording of them playing together in duet. And what a gift it is!
