Album Review

Mitchell, Roscoe – “Nonaah” – [Nessa]

Cousin Mary   9/8/2009   CD, Jazz

2 CD set of 1977 recordings from saxophonist Roscoe Mitchell, former founding member of AACM, currently (2009) Darius Milhaud Chair of Composition at Mills College in Oakland. Many solos, others alongside Anthony Braxton, Malachi Favors, Muhal Richard Abrams and others.

Very difficult, abrasive, repetitive pieces. CD1 track 1 repeats the same 8-note phrase for almost 9 minutes. Experimental, innovative, squawking that is raw. Unique, unlike anything else.
