Throughout his career, saxophonist Roscoe Mitchell (b. 1940, Chicago) has been a leading voice in the fields of contemporary composition and improvised music. He is a founding member of Chicago's Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians and of its flagship group, the Art Ensemble of Chicago, has composed for small combos, orchestras, and string ensembles, and has conveyed his lifetime of knowledge to a new generation of musicians as an educator at University of Wisconsin in Madison and at Mills College in Oakland. Nameless Sound is pleased to welcome Professor Mitchell to Houston for a weeklong residency, during which he will lead a series of workshops and rehearsals, and participate in three public events, including this special duo concert co-presented with the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston.

For this event, Mitchell reconnects with Alvin Fielder (b. 1935, Meridian, MS), the man behind the drum kit on his earliest sessions, including 1967's landmark Sound. The house drummer at the Eldorado Ballroom in the 1950s while he attended school at TSU, Fielder went on to perform with the likes of Sun Ra, Kidd Jordan, Dennis Gonzalez, and other key figures of the jazz avant-garde. He is truly a living encyclopedia of modern drum techniques, and his visits to Houston in recent years have consistently been memorable affairs.
