Blue-in-Green:PODCAST #123: Robert Mitchell

Welcome to Episode #123 of the Blue-in-Green:PODCAST which this week sees Imran connect with Robert Mitchell.

Initially recorded as part of our International Jazz Day celebrations, we're thrilled to now present the full unedited version of our conversation with pianist, composer, poet, author and educator Robert Mitchell.

Mitchell has forged a formidable reputation as a gifted pianist and composer. Currently a piano professor (Jazz) at the Guildhall, piano lecturer at Leeds Conservatoire and a teacher at YMM.  Whether he is releasing music amongst a collective or as a solo improvised performer, Robert Mitchell continues to present inspired and forward-thinking music that cements his talent and his name as of the UK's most revered jazz artists.  Robert's second book, 'City Of Sanctuary', will be out later this year on Common Tone Press.

With two incredible projects to delve into, it's an immeasurable pleasure to present our in-depth conversation with Robert Mitchell discussing his TRUE THINK project, his upcoming The Flame improvising trio as well as delving into conversations about technology and our wider societal issues relating to race within the UK and overseas.

TRUE THINK have upcoming performances at the following UK venues:

4/5 - Soundcellar (Poole)

6/5 - Vortex (London)

12/5 - Crookes Social Club (Sheffield)

18/5 - Jazz Refreshed (London)

25/5 - Zedel’s Brasserie (Crazy Coqs, London)
