Composer Roscoe Mitchell prepared two compositions with space for improvisation, as well as a Cards composition in which the musicians received six cards with written material that were then arranged in any order and played at any tempo.

Mitchell, Roscoe & Nicole Mitchell's Black Earth Ensemble
Three Compositions - Live At Sant'anna Arresi

Mitchell, Roscoe & Nicole Mitchell's Black Earth Ensemble: Three Compositions - Live At Sant'anna Ar (RogueArt)
Label: RogueArt    
Released in: France    

"Despite the compositions' respective demands, Nicole Mitchell and Black Earth Ensemble fully and vividly represented Roscoe Mitchell's varied means of creating chemistry between written and improvised materials. At every turn in the program, they played with a palpable sense of familiarity and ease with the composer's vernacular and methods. They sounded like they've been playing this music every night for a long time."-Bill Shoemaker, from the liner notes
