Robert Mitchell is an award-winning pianist, keyboard player, composer, songwriter, poet, and author. At manchester jazz festival, Robert Mitchell presents music in the spirit of his latest piano solo CD, The Rainbow Mountain/Can We Care (2020). This is his 10th album and his third, after The Equinox and The Glimpse , piano solo recording. While The Glimpse focused on Mitchell’s fascination with a number of great pianists who have defined left hand only composition, teaching and performance, alongside left hand cultural connotations, The Rainbow… explores these ideas furthered by his experiences and music making since, in a live, long, improvised set. He will perform original music, improvisation, left hand only music and some music by several legends. Robert will narrate some poetry from both his first collection – A Vigil For Justice, A Vigil For Peace and his upcoming second book – City Of Sanctuary (Common Tone Press).
