Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Transatlantic Art Ensemble/Roscoe Mitchell: Philipp Wachsmann (violin); Nils Bultmann (viola); Marcio Mattos (cello); Neil Metcalfe (flute); John Rangecroft (clarinet); Evan Parker (soprano saxophone, tenor saxophone); Anders Svanoe (alto saxophone, baritone saxophone); Corey Wilkes (trumpet, flugelhorn); Craig Taborn (piano); Jaribu Shahid, Barry Guy (double bass); Tani Tabbal, Paul Lytton (drums, percussion).
  • Tireless jazz experimentalist Roscoe Mitchell blazed plenty of musical trails in his iconic free jazz group, the Art Ensemble of Chicago, and he continued to do so well into the 21st century. This stunning disc excerpts performances from a 2004 concert where Mitchell played with the Transatlantic Art Ensemble, a 14-piece outfit that includes some of the finest players on the contemporary avant-garde jazz scene. Surprisingly, COMPOSITION AND IMPROVISATION is light years removed from the primal skronk of AAC. Instead, the dominance of strings and layered textures gives the set the feel of modern chamber music, creating an effect that is seductive, challenging, and captivating.
Professional Reviews
The Wire (p.48) - "Mitchell deploys various strategies, from full notation to specifying the notes to be used in an improvisation."

Down Beat (p.64) - "[T]he music exerts a chill, dark power, periodically lit by the fireworks from the magnificent players."
