Robert Mitchell 3io

Thursday 6th October 2011 6pm - 7pm 107 Charing Cross Road Ray's Jazz Event, Free Event

Robert Mitchell really needs no introduction - this award-winning pianist, composer and arranger has been one of the most powerful and creative presences on the British jazz scene since his recording debut a decade ago.

A deft, inventive pianist with a unique style of improvisation that finds him riffing on lateral motifs rather than following classic bop influenced lines, Mitchell has worked with some of contemporary jazz's most creative figures, including Courtney Pine, Matana Roberts, Greg Osby and Steve Coleman.

His trio, 3io, won Best Jazz Album at Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Awards with their 2009 debut. Drawing on music written over nearly two centuries, by creators from the UK, Africa, Sweden, and Germany alongside their own original music, they take inspiration from all great music regardless of genre.

Line-up:

Robert Mitchell: Piano
Tom Mason: Double Bass
Richard Spaven: Drums

Tickets: Free, no need to book
