Matthew Shipp Trio

December 3. On the same night that Matt Pond and his band perform at one Hudson Valley church (see here), another acclaimed artist named Matt will lead a very different musical evening at another church to the south: avant-jazz pianist Matthew Shipp, who will hold forth with his trio at Saint Andrew's Episcopal Church for the occasion. New York's fiery new-generation champ of the ivories, Shipp rose to prominence in the early 1990s as a member of the David S. Ware Quartet and has kept his highly inflammable creative torch burning full blast ever since, working as a restless solo performer and in musical settings of all sizes. His current trio features drummer Newman Taylor Baker and area bassist Michael Bisio and this month makes a rare visit to St. Andrew's Church, an event guaranteed to veer between explosiveness and meditation. $20 advance; $25 door. Beacon. (212) 353-6971; Standrewsbeaconny.org.
