Solo 3

Roscoe Mitchell

 Roscoe Mitchell- saxes, flute, perc.


Roscoe Mitchell has been one of my mainstays for over thirty years now. His work with the Art Ensemble of Chicago and as a solo player has been bountiful beyond measure. I am chagrined to say that much of the solo reed material here is uncharacteristically coldly abstract. And there is a lot of it, filling up two discs. The third cd, which almost all features his percussion “cage,” (a hollowed-out cube containing a plethora of percussion devices) is much more successful, by turns beguiling, subtle and delicate.
