Recorded live at the Jazz Café in London in July 2018 The Rainbow Mountain/Can We Care is new from pianist-composer Robert Mitchell via Depth of Field on 24 April, a landmark solo album first listens strongly suggest, it is dedicated to Cecil Taylor.
Mitchell in the liner notes writes: ''I have long admired this approach to pianistic expression. And so I had wanted to do a recording like this – and the opportunity felt right when I was asked to perform as a part of this concert (before the Grammy winner Vijay Iyer and his band). The further I have spent in reverence of a number of piano icons in Jazz and Improvised music – the more I consider this to be a rite of passage.''
Mitchell also this spring publishes new poetry collection ''City Of Sanctuary''. He plays the Hebden Bridge Piano Festival at Hebden Bridge Town Hall on 26 April.
