Mitchell, Roscoe: Numbers (RogueArt)
Label: RogueArt    
Released in: France    

"In the 45 years since he recorded Sound, Roscoe Mitchell's music has steadily evolved and diversified, making the idea of a comprehensive one-disc survey an impossibility. However, as much as any album, the both/and nature of Roscoe Mitchell's music is vividly represented on Numbers." -Bill Shoemaker, from the liner notes
