British pianist Robert Mitchell shares his thoughts on long-form solo improvisations, and Corey Mwamba plays new music from the American experimental jazz vocalist Patty Waters.
What goes through a musician’s head before they embark on a long solo improvisation? Pianist Robert Mitchell shares his aspirations and the mental preparation process he went through for his forthcoming album. It’s a 37-minute solo performance dedicated to Cecil Taylor and recorded in a familiar setting for Robert, the Jazz Cafe in Camden.
Also in the show, Corey shares new music from the American experimental jazz vocalist Patty Waters and there’s an uplifting, energetic performance by Gard Nilssen’s Supersonic Orchestra recorded live at Molde International Jazz Festival in 2019.
