Mitchell, Nicole / Black Earth Ensemble - Intergalactic Beings

"...the appeal of Intergalactic Beings is how composer/flutist Nicole Mitchell leads her ten-member ensemble in interpreting a theme that’s far from common."-Jazz Word

"These songs are full of raw energy, alternating exploratory ensemble playing with alluring thematic statements reflecting the composer’s deep sense of form."-Well You Need It

"Nicole Mitchell's second avant-jazz suite based on the Xenogenesis novels of Octavia Butler was recorded live on April 30, 2010, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.
Black Earth Ensemble features a cast of Chicago's most respected players and improvisers. This is their eighth album."
