Album Description

The Dennis Mitcheltree Trio performs a musical study of political discourse from 2004 with audience participation. This live recording from the River Music Concert Series in New York City features the Dennis Mitchel3 performing all original straight ahead, rap/hip hop and free jazz in it's premier concert. “The members of this trio have reached a level of shared musical empathy that means they're tighter than tight…the group as a whole demonstrates its uncommon ability to give the music some air, making for a sound that, while still in keeping with many major aspects of the tradition, indicates just how deep their own identity is.” Nic Jone, All About Jazz

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
