Review: Brian Mitchell – Rhythm & Poetry
Another recording I came across, searching for information on current jazz recordings I’ve recently picked, on MySpace, is Brian Mitchell’s Rhythm & Poetry. I never heard of Mitchell, but he’s on a few of my recent acquisitions. This is one funky release. “The Duo” of Marco Benevento and Joe Russo, along with Mike Dillon, aids Mitchell. Mitchell, a sometime member of Carlos Washington’s Giant People and Antibalas (listen to the track “Lights Over Lagos”) serves up some tasty, searing guitar, and the Duo don’t disappoint with their jam grooves. Give this one a try.
