On a personal note I would like to dedicate this to my dear friend and musical colleague Claudio Slon who was a constant source of inspiration and one of the greatest musician - drummers I ever had the pleasure to work with. I miss his friendship and music dearly.

A tender version of Melody's lovely tune as performed in a duo early morning on TV in Stockholm. This clip is only available on the Swedish site (there is a short commercial before the clip begins) but it works fine and I highly recommend it!
Brazil Explore interviewMitchell Long Group
"Brazil Explore" the website visited our regular Sunday night gig at "The Shore" in Hermosa beach and did an interview with the Mitchell Long Group. Brazil explore magazine also did an article in October 2009 on me. It is available on their web site. Hopefully you can pick out and hear a little of the music here (I wish they would have included a little more of us playing because it was a stellar residency gig and great band)
Mitchell Long with Melody GardotAvo Sessions, Basel Swtzerland
Here is a link to a show in Basel Switzerland called "Avo Sessions" with Melody Gardot. On this evening we were featured with Herbie Hancock. There is a lot of my work on tour in 2012 with Melody Gardot available online to see and some performances are better than others but I chose this one because it has a decent sound, video production and is enjoyable to watch.
