New Release on Greenleaf Music:
Mitchell/Bankhead/Drake - Indigo Trio: Live in Montreal Available now at MUSICSTEM
Greenleaf Music proudly announces the release of the 3rd Volume of its Paperback Series: Mitchell/Bankhead/Drake, IIndigo Trio: Live in Montreal. The trio of Nicole Mitchell (Flute), Harrison Bankhead (acoustic bass and cello), and Hamid Drake (drums, percussion), have consistently rewarded audiences around the world with some of the most original music being made today, and this concert is no exception. Recorded live in Canada at the 2005 Suoni per IL Popolo Festival in Montreal, this set defines the sound of Chicago's AACM in the current era: telepathic improvisation, dramatically open compositions, deep-rooted modern jazz at its very best.
Here's what Nicole Mitchell has to say about Indigo Trio: Live in Montreal: This concert in Montreal was our first performance as a trio, although we've played together for many years. Hamid and Harrison have played together since they were fourteen, Harrison and I have worked together in Frequency with Ed Wilkerson since 2000, and Hamid has played and recorded over the years with my Black Earth Ensemble. Indigo Trio features the adventurous music of our friendship-connected, intuitive and playful."
This is a fantastic recording by an exciting and beautiful group.
