Robert Mitchell (Solo Piano)
Over his nearly 30 years entrenched in the art of music, Robert Mitchell has recorded ten albums of his own projects, participated in over 100 projects as a sideman and has performed in more than 40 countries. Apart from being a pianist, composer and innovator, he is a festival creator and curator as well as a highly respected educator.
For Newcastle Festival of Jazz and Improvised Music, Robert presents his new CD, ‘The Rainbow Mountain / Can We Care’, this is his 10th album and his second piano solo recording after ‘The Glimpse’.
While ‘The Glimpse’ focused on Mitchell’s fascination with a number of great pianists who have defined left hand only composition, teaching and performance, alongside left hand cultural connotations, ‘The Rainbow…' explores these ideas furthered by his experiences and music making since, in a live, long, improvised set. He will perform original music, improvisation, left hand only music and some music by several legends.
“Mitchell is a lyricist and a thinker, and British jazz is far richer for his presence”
- Mike Butler
