Misha Mullov-Abbado

Misha Mullov-Abbado is a string-bass player and composer and the leader of a jazz quintet. I like it.

This is “Circle Song” from his debut album New Ansonia.

Misha Mullov-Abbado comes to us via Edition Records.

Misha Mullov-Abbado is a musician who combines great imagination, raw talent tempered by a clear vision, and a colourful character. Son of the Italian conductor Claudio Abbado and Russian violinist Viktoria Mullova, Misha showed early musical promise but was keen to follow his own path and became intent on developing a career in jazz.

The more I hear of Edition Records and their artists, the more I like it. Jazz may have originated in the US, but it is thriving in Europe today.
