Indigo Trio

Harrison Bankhead bass, Nicole Mitchell flutes, Hamid Drake drums

"Creative music making is a matter of energy, heart, and trust, and when all three are present the music flies. A meeting of three old Chicago friends and collaborators, flutist Nicole Mitchell, drummer Hamid Drake, and bassist Harrison Bankhead, the Indigo Trio soars with the kind of spiritual energy that has inspired Great Black Music from its inception...

Building a bridge between composition and improvisation, Bankhead, Drake, and Mitchell have created an inspiring second CD. With their spirit of openness and generosity, the Indigo Trio model the poet Rumi's insight that "only from the heart can you touch the sky ."--Ellen Waterman, excerpt from the liner notes of Anaya (Rogue Art 2010)
