True Think

“. . . he draws influence from many musical styles in his playing: jazz, Latin, funk, blues, classical . . . all components that go towards making the pianist what he is: a truly original virtuoso,” commented UK Vibe on Robert Mitchell.

True Think is a new band led by the acclaimed keyboard player/pianist/songwriter. Performing music from their forthcoming album of powerful songs of protest, love and peace, they blend electronic, jazz, R'n'B, spoken word, film and folk influences together to create a unique sound.

Joining Robert are vocalist, violinist, songwriter and composer Alice Zawadzki, Sky Arts Guitar Star 2019 Zayn Mohammed, bassist Tom Mason and drummer Saleem Raman. 

Robert is a throwback to the powerful tradition of artistic mastery in pursuit of transcendence. Whether performing solo or with his various ensembles, his focus is upon the highest ideals of the essence of jazz.

Robert has performed with Courtney Pine, the Bournemouth Symphony Chorus, Steve Coleman, Basement Jaxx, Billy Harper, Omar Puente, Jhelisa Anderson, Norma Winstone, Orphy Robinson and many more.

Musical Director for the celebration of the classic BBC Jazz 625 series - broadcast live from the Cheltenham Jazz Festival - Robert led the house band, featuring special guests such as Gregory Porter, Joshua Redman and Charlie Watts.
