The Marion Art Center welcomes back to the MAC stage The David Mitton Project. David Mitton, a graduate from the Longy School of Music (2010) is a saxophonist and composer. Since graduating he has produced three albums: Catapult (2013), Microcosm (2015), and Trace (2018) under the name The David Mitton Project. Mitton has been performing regularly with The Flying Dutchmen for nearly 5 years and is in the process of writing a practice guide for scales, in relation to composition and improvisation. Mitton’s musical style is within the jazz idiom, with a focus on hard bop and free jazz, as well as more popular styles such as funk and R&B. Expect to hear interplay between instruments and improvisation over progressions, influenced by such genres. Mitton will perform original material and what he calls “underrated standards,” rearranged to make them his own.
The David Mitton Project also includes Jim Robitaille on guitar, John Dalton on drums, and Daniel Ashkenazy on bass.
