Smart/Mitchell Duo

Duo project with the brilliant pianist Robert Mitchell. I was lucky to work with Robert on his epic composition Invocation, premiered at the London Jazz Festival in 2014, and this project developed out of our conversations about improvisation, fluidity of genre and the central importance of both live interaction and spontaneity in performance.

Our duo album 'Zeitgeist' will be released later this year on Discus records.

Shirley Smart - cello

Robert Mitchell - piano
