Product Description

Fiction is the highly anticipated debut recording from Matt Mitchell, one of the most in-demand pianists in jazz. Recently named one of Four Young Pianists on the Rise by the New York
Times, Mitchell is a member of the Dave Douglas Quintet, John Hollenbeck s Claudia Quintet & Large Ensemble, and most prominently with Tim Berne s
Snakeoil, whose eponymous album garnered
accolades as one of the best releases of 2012.

The music on Fiction completely re-imagines the notion of piano jazz. Mitchell originally conceived each piece as an etude that tested the technical limits of his pianistic abilities. Packed with wild gyrations of rhythm and counterpoint, the pieces on Fiction are like some warped amalgam of Thelonious Monk, Chopin, and Autechre. Accompanying Mitchell is drummer Ches Smith (Mr. Bungle, Marc
Ribot s Ceramic Dog, Secret Chiefs 3), who brings a punk and indie-rock aesthetic. The music pushes and pulls against form, a perpetual motion machine
of variations on a theme, but with hiccups. Seeming not wholly of this world, Fiction is a figment of
Mitchell s febrile imagination and another outpost in the possibilities of jazz improvisation.

Review

His piano creates the space it lives in; he s a master of evaporating tones, and every chord he plays is broken crystal sharp and translucent. --Giovanni Russonello, Capital Bop

A pianist of classical touch and methodical temperament, he fell in with coolly instigative composer-improvisers like John Hollenbeck and Tim Berne, his reputation accruing as a byproduct of his work ethic. --New York Times
