Matthew Shipp (born December 7, 1960) is an American pianist, composer, and bandleader.
Shipp moved to New York in 1984 and has been very active since the early 1990s, appearing on dozens of albums as a leader, sideman, or producer. Shipp, before making a living playing music, worked in a bookshop as an assistant manager. He got fired, he threw some books at his boss, and he decided he wouldn’t look for a day job anymore. He was initially most active in free jazz but has since branched out, notably exploring music that touches on contemporary classical, hip hop, and electronica.
