Michael Dessen Trio & Nicole Mitchell

  • Details
    Active since 2003, the Michael Dessen Trio has been praised by critics for its unique blend of intricate composition, open improvisation and live electronics. With three releases on Clean Feed Records and a fourth coming in 2017, the band is especially known for their immersive, continuous live sets and for recordings produced with the same spirit. This performance will premiere new works designed to feature renowned guests Nicole Mitchell (flute) and Joshua White (piano). The west coast premiere of When Life’s Door Opens is a multi-movement work by creative flutist/composer Nicole Mitchell, written for a chamber ensemble and three vocalists from contrasting improvisational traditions.
