Wakefield Jazz presents its opening gig of the new season and in their completely refurbished venue!
With an intriguing and spellbinding blend of acoustic and electronic sounds, Jazz, RnB, Spoken Word, film and folk influences, True Think is a multi-generational, multi-cultural ensemble with a truly unique sound and [is/are] led by pianist Robert Mitchell as they perform the music from their upcoming album “Hold The Light/The New Resistance”; a new recording of powerful songs of protest, love and peace.
Joining Robert (keys, percussion, sampler) on stage will be vocalist and songwriter Liselotte Östblom, multi-instrumentalist Zayn Mohammed, multi-genre bassist/keys player Tom Mason and drummer/percussionist Saleem Raman.
Robert Mitchell is one of the most significant voices in British jazz. Multi-faceted creator, pianist, keyboardist, composer, improviser, writer, poet and so much more. As Gilles Peterson put it “a very important, influential musician” and a relentless seeker and thinker, encompassing many art forms, musical genres and constantly pushing the envelope.
Robert Mitchell’s band True Think is yet another manifestation of this creative spirit.
