Info

Roscoe Mitchell (born August 3, 1940) is an American composer, jazz instrumentalist, and educator, known for being "a technically superb – if idiosyncratic – saxophonist."[1] The Penguin Guide to Jazz described him as "one of the key figures" in avant-garde jazz;[2] All About Jazz states that he has been "at the forefront of modern music" for the past 35 years.[3] Critic Jon Pareles in The New York Times has mentioned that Mitchell "qualifies as an iconoclast."[4] In addition to his own work as a bandleader, Mitchell is known for cofounding the Art Ensemble of Chicago and the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM).
