With lush, chromatic, extended harmonies, pianist Robert Mitchell's piece Multitudes II seemed almost to be suspended in the air. Written as a response to George Russell's Stratusfunk, this music hovered beautifully in a timeless void, before settling into a gentle treading pace, after which, with radiant tenderness, eventually dissolving into a calm conclusion.

Robert Mitchell must be one of the most versatile musicians playing in Britain.
