"Concept" was created to serve as a vehicle for the free exchange/ exploration of musical ideas and to create and present these musical explorations in public performance. With an approach grounded in improvisation and spontaneous composition, "Concept" combines various elements - free jazz, world music, ambient soundscapes, etc. - into a cohesive whole. Original themes or interpretations of "standards" may serve as a starting point or become evident during a performance based on the combined experiences and interaction of the core and guest performers.

Based in beautiful Evergreen, CO the core members of "Concept" are:

Paul Mimlitsch - Guitar. Prior to relocating to Evergreen Colorado, Paul was active in the NJ/ Philadelphia area improvisational/ electronic music scene as a member of the exploratory jazz group "Adelante" (with J. Jody Janetta - perc./ bass and Dan Osterweil - horns) and the avant garde duo "Invasion of Time" (w/ Chapman Stick player/ loopist Jim Speer).

is the saxophonist, flautist, bassist and primary composer for the aggressive world-beat jazz band "Before the Rain", which is based in Evergreen, Colorado.

In addition to performing with "Concept" and "Before the Rain", Richard has written and recorded music for independent films, including "Dumpster Diver," "Black Jack Boy" and "Several Things Intended Not to Hurt You.” He is the musical director of the "Norma Spirit Foundation", which provides arts and culture programs for the Jefferson County Schools “Day Treatment Programs”, where he teaches special education and music.
