The Mitchell-Ruff Duo, an in
strumental combination, will be
the second attraction in the Union
They will, appear Wednesday at
8 p.m. in the Union Ballroom.
There will be a Meet the Artists
session following the performance,
Bob Handy, director of Union ac
tivities, said.' :
Dwike Mitchell on the piano and
Willie Ruff on the bass and French
horn compose the duo. With the
use of tonal combinations and oth
er devices, the Duo has both old
and new jazz forms in their rep-
Building from a classical base,
the Duo combines the rhythms of
jazz with classical themes to pro
duce inventive . chamber music
works. Handy said.
Mitchell and Ruff have used
more than the usual classical base
of MOhaud, Schonberg and Bartok
and-have drawn heavily from the
works of such old masters as
Bach,' Scarlatti and Beethoven.
The free-flowing ideas of the
Romanticist movement in music
are employed in most of the Duo's
music, but their music is not with
out modern touches, Handy said.
Ruff and Mitchell met during
military service and made their
first musical experiments then.
Mitchell studied the classics at ihe
Philadelphia Academy of Music
following his discharge and ap
peared as a soloist with the Phil
adelphia Symphony Orchestra.
Later, Mitchell joined the Lionel
Hampton group and loured Eur-i
