“It will not be many years before Misha becomes one of the world’s leading figures in music” La Jornada
“An unfailing inventive, artfully produced, and delightfully sunny debut” The Telegraph on New Ansonia
“Both his composing talents and his propulsive bass-playing are currently such hot UK jazz news” The Guardian
Son of the late, great Italian conductor Claudio Abbado and Russian violinist Viktoria Mullova, British-born Mullov-Abbado grew up in a powerfully musical environment, a unique upbringing that has inspired Misha to create his own musical identity and tell his own compelling story. Winner of the 2014 Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize, Misha is an in-demand bass player, composer and arranger based in London. He is a 2014 City Music Foundation Artist and recently released his debut album New Ansonia consisting of all his own compositions performed by his quintet on Edition Records, which has been included in “Best Jazz Albums of 2015” by The Telegraph and BBC Radio 3 and been extremely well-received in newspapers and magazines across Europe. As an experienced band-leader but also a versatile sideman Misha has performed at many of London’s top venues such as Ronnie Scott’s, the Vortex, 606 Club, Pizza Express and Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room (as part of the BBC Proms Late series), as well as venues in the rest of the UK and Europe. Having won the 2014 Dankworth Prize for jazz composition Misha is an experienced composer and writes for various jazz groups as well as classical soloists and ensembles, and is influenced by a variety of jazz, classical and pop music.
