Mitchell is one of the great songwriters of our generation and has traversed the borders of jazz, folk, and rock for fifty years. She has collaborated with many jazz musicians, including Charles Mingus, Jaco Pastorius, Pat Metheny, Wayne Shorter, Brian Blade, and Herbie Hancock. 

Bley has written some of the most idiosyncratic, tuneful melodies of our time, songs that have been recorded by George Russell, Jimmy Guiffre, Gary Burton, and Pat Metheny, and she has had an ongoing musical partnership with bassist Steve Swallow for decades.
