Mitchell & Mwamba

Our set combines writing from both of us, along with extended improvisations and jazz standards. If you're not aware, Robert is one of the best pianists in... well... the world.

Press quotes

Improvised duet from two talented performers - with pianist Mitchell's astute percussive attack matching Mwamba's multi-instrumental layers - taken to new levels with his use of vibes and dulcimer on breathtakingly delicate and inventive reworkings of standards with almost limitless improv possibilites. TimeOut, January 2006

Originals, the odd bop anthem, a jazz classic or two provided their material, plus occasional patches of improvisation, but whatever their material, they intertwined and struck sparks off each other with the sort of spontaneous brio and pep that characterises the format at its best (think Gary Burton with Chick Corea or Makoto Ozone).
