Mitchell, Nicole

Mitchell, Nicole: Awakening (Delmark)
Label: Delmark    
Released in: USA    

"Awakening features Nicole Mitchell's unique flute work in an intimate quartet setting, supported and stimulated by some of Chicago's finest improvisers: Jeff Parker, guitar; Harrison Bankhead, bass; Avreeayl Ra, drums. Named 2010 Flutist of the Year in the DownBeat Critic's Poll, Jazz Journalist Association and Jazz Italy magazine, Mitchell rides the wave into new compositions that explore many colors, moods and rhythmic grooves.

Mitchell's earlier projects involved larger groups; Black Earth Ensemble, Black Unstoppable Black Earth Strings, Renegades. This smaller group setting opens the door for Mitchell to stretch out as a soloist more so than on any of her previous recordings."-Delmark Records
