Review: Pianist Matt Mitchell brings a steady cerebralism to every project that he is a member of. The hardest thing about trying to digest this recording is placing it in some form of historical context. Modern creative jazz with classical etudes and informed by progressive rock? Perhaps. Regardless, it is a compelling and singular workout for the ears. Comparisons are difficult.
