Short preview: Robert Mitchell’s Panacea

Robert Mitchell’s Panacea
The Spice of Life – Wednesday 30th September.

Trumpeter Peter Horsfall has written in recommending Robert Mitchell’s gig later this month, with the latest version of his group Panacea. They’re at the Spice of Life on Wednesday September 30th.

The group, formed in 2000, has released two critically acclaimed albums, including 2005’s Trust on the F-IRE label. Vocalist Deborah Jordan (above, with Mitchell/photo Helena Dornellas) and in-demand bassist Tom Mason remain at the core of the band, whilst Mitchell’s familiar associate on drums, the fiery Richard Spaven, is replaced by Shaney Forbes of Empirical fame. Expect tightly-knit grooves and technical fireworks from one of London’s finest pianists.

Robert Mitchell’s Panacea also play Mau Maus on Thursday 26 Nov & The Vortex on Sat 23rd January 2010.
