GILLES PETERSON´S WORLDWIDE AWARDS - JAZZ ALBUM OF THE YEAR 2009 Robert Mitchell 3io has it's roots in it's leader´s long-running band, Panacea. Drummer Richard Spaven and bassist Tom Mason are the rhythm section of Panacea and, together with Robert, have quietly been developing a real signature in this traditional jazz piano trio format. Over the years the trio has honed it's mix of influences (song, broken beat, hip-hop, odd metre, freeform jazz) with older and more modern jazz/electronica/rock. The Greater Good features arrangements of tunes by Massive Attack (Teardrop), and the famously sampled Galt MacDermot (composer of Hair), along with five Mitchell originals, a tune each by Tom and Richard, and the rarely played Dance Cadaverous, written by Wayne Shorter for his 1964 album Speak No Evil. Robert Mitchell has forged a formidable reputation as a gifted pianist and composer. As part of the prestigious F-ire Collective, Robert won the Jazz on 3 Innovation Award at the 2004 BBC Jazz Awards; he has also been nominated twice: For Rising Star in 2002, and Best New Work in 2003. He´s played/recorded with names such as Norma Winstone, Steve Coleman, Courtney Pine, Steve Williamson, Ty, 2 Banks of 4, and IG Culture, in addition to leading the six-piece Panacea.
