about

Mujician are an extraordinary UK improvising/free jazz quartet, featuring Keith Tippett-piano, Paul Dunmall-reeds, Paul Rogers-bass, & Tony Levin-drums. Intense-yet-controlled, with dynamic interplay from all four musicians. Mujician's music is notable for its wide range of musical interplay, its contrast between fiery freedom & calm melodies, and for it's wide variety of tonal color. They manage to be both ''avant garde'' & ''in the tradition''.

"The interplay among the four musicians is incredible - this is a listening band. The music may be unfettered & spontaneous, but the players are disciplined & sympathetic to the musical moment."
- Goldmine.

"...in the fine tradition of the Art Ensemble, Roland Kirk, or Mingus at his most out; solid intuitive, organic improvisation with all concerned leanding their ears. A-"
- Montreal Mirror.

"A major statement by a very fine band"
- The Wire.
