cannonball-addict Posted December 23, 2005 Report Share Posted December 23, 2005 Is Nicole Mitchell the daughter of Roscoe Mitchell? And at any point has she been in the AEC. I really dug her Black Earth Ensemble CD last year. I think it was on Delmark. Anyone have any recommendations of her music? I am very into AEC and the whole Chicago scene/history is growing on me. She was just here in Pittsburgh. Was supposed to be with David Boykin on this mini-tour, but word has it he didn't show (probably because he knew he wouldn't make his guarantee at this venue on a Sunday night). It was just her and some good local cats like this sax player named Ben Opie and this bassist named Mark Perna. Apparently they were playing pretty straight-ahead material. Y'all need to check out Opie and his ensemble Opek which does concerts that are usually tributes to a given composer - Trane, Miles, Sun Ra, Monk, etc. He is an excellent all-around reed player. His day job is teaching music technology at Carnegie Mellon and the local performing arts high school. He does a mean version of Beatrice! He also leads a group called Thoth Trio. Anyways, info on Nicole Mitchell Would be appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
