The Misha Mullov-Abbado Group is made up of some of the finest, multi-award-winning musicians in London, and under Misha’s direction (winner of the 2014 Kenny Wheeler Prize, 2014 Dankworth Prize and a 2017 BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist) the group performs his original compositions and arrangements with a broad variety of influences.

The band has performed at King’s Place, the Barbican Centre, the Elgar Room as part of the BBC Proms Lates series and has played at many of UK’s jazz venues. Having been signed to Edition Records the group has released its debut album “New Ansonia”. The band is currently in the process of recording a second album that will be released with Edition Records in 2017.

The band’s repertoire is influenced by a broad spectrum of music in the classical, jazz and pop genres as well as folk traditions from around the world, particularly from South America. The music contains chorale-based and contemporary-classical styles that are influenced by Bach and Brahms right through to Stravinsky and Bartok and beyond, and jazz musicians such as Bill Frisell. Misha’s music is also heavily based on swing, funk and other groove-based styles influenced by Avishai Cohen, Ray Brown, Gareth Lockrane and Jasper Høiby, as well as pop giants Stevie Wonder and Earth, Wind & Fire.
