As one of the most significant voices in British Jazz, Robert Mitchell is a multi-faceted creator, pianist, composer, improviser, writer, poet and much more. As Gilles Peterson put it, “a very important, influential musician”. True Think is a multi-generational, multi-cultural reflection of several periods of Robert Mitchell’s journey. They will perform music from their new album of powerful songs of protest, love and peace.

Robert will be joined on stage by Liselotte Östblom on vocals, multi-instrumentalist Zayn Mohammed on guitar, bassist/keys player Tom Mason, and drummer and percussionist Saleem Raman. Together, they blend electronic, jazz, RnB, spoken word, film and folk influences to create a unique sound.

Robert Mitchell is a familiar pianist to MJF audiences, having played with Jean Toussaint and Tom Harrison/Cleveland Watkiss in past festivals. This is a special opportunity to get a sneak preview of this incredible band a few days before they launch their new album, Hold the Light/The New Resistance, at Ronnie Scotts on 13 October.
