  • Show Description
  • As one of the most significant voices in British Jazz, Robert Mitchell is a multi-faceted creator, pianist, composer, improviser, writer, poet and much more. As Giles Peterson put it, “a very important, influential musician”.

    TRUE THINK is a multi-generational, multi-cultural reflection of several periods of Robert Mitchell’s journey. They will perform music from their new album of powerful songs of protest, love and peace.

    Robert will be joined on stage by Liselotte Östblom on vocals, multi-instrumentalist Zayn Mohammed on guitar, bassist/keys player Tom Mason, and drummer and percussionist Saleem Raman. Together, they blend electronic, jazz, RnB, spoken word, film and folk influences to create a unique sound.

    They are showcasing their debut double album Hold the Light/The New Resistance.
