Publikováno: 8.4.2020

Two weeks ago, the new CD of Roscoe Mitchell's music was released on Wide Hive Records (Berkeley, CA), including a recording made in 2017 at Ostrava Days Festival. The orchestra version of the Distant Radio Transmission piece was premiered by Ostravská banda and soloists Roscoe Mitchell (saxophone) and Thomas Buckner (baritone), conducted by Petr Kotík. This new compilation of Mitchell's works has already gained some very positive reviews (New York Times, The New York City Jazz Record). The album can be bought online or at our upcoming events.
