His versatility in different styles of music has led him to many opportunities of playing with the greatest musicians in the world.
For 25 years he was the sax and flute soloist with The Tito Puente Orchestra & Latin-Jazz Ensemble, and was also a steady member of the Mongo Santamaria band for many years. Continuing that tradition, Mitch is the sax/flute soloist and co-leader of The Mambo Legends Orchestra (former all-stars of The Tito Puente Orchestra). Some of the great salsa/latin-jazz artists he has played with and/or recorded with are Machito, Celia Cruz, La Lupe, Eddie & Charlie Palmieri, Paquito D’Rivera, the Chico O’Farrill Orchestra, Milly/Jocelyn & Los Vecinos, Cheo Feliciano, Joe Cuba, Aventura, and many more.

In 2012, Mitch took part in the documentary, “For the Love of Mambo“. The film features the Mambo Legends Orchestra performing with the Latin Ensemble of the Crane School of Music at the State University of New York. Taking place in New York City in the small village of Potsdam, the documentary follows a group of enthusiastic young musicians as they discover the mystery, passion, and thrill of performing Latin music with some of the legendary masters of this treasured art form.
Last but not least, Mitch’s signature solo sound can be heard every day around the world, as he is the saxophone soloist on the theme song of the mega-hit T.V. show, Sex & The City.
